Can You Trust AI: Exploring Biases and Diversity

Gender diversity in technology – specifically AI – is lacking. Low-biased, ethical, and fair AI systems require a diverse workforce of humans, including women.” This quote from Beena Ammanath, the Executive Director for Deloitte's AI institute, highlights the urgency behind designing AI with ethics in mind. This discussion with industry experts covers how ethical, low-biased, and fair AI should be a must, rather than a maybe, when building technology for the future. How can we take a human centered focus to the design process? How does the lack of diverse perspectives used to create current AI algorithms affect the media we consume? How do we use diverse perspectives to also effectively address/prevent racism in AI?
