The Bias Truth in AI Models
1:45 - 2:15 | Friday, May 24
Artificial intelligence is poised to have a transformational impact on our world; it is already affecting how we do business and live our lives today. Its effects magnify as virtually every industry begins to transform their core processes and business models to take advantage of artificial intelligence. Because of this level of influence and impact artificial intelligence will have in our world, it is essential that we keep it pure, balanced and unbiased in the tasks and processes it performs; however, are we? Of late, we see a trend of bias making its way into artificial intelligence systems that pose a threat to artificial intelligence becoming a positive impact on our world. The bias found in the data and even the models themselves can cause subtle unexpected outcomes. Join me as we discuss what this bias is, how it might be (accidentally or perhaps deliberately) included into data and models, and how we can detect and remove bias from our artificial intelligence systems.
