Speech title

Artificial Intelligence: The Good, the Bad, and the Bias

Speech description

The world is run by Artificial Intelligence (AI) and people who know how to use it. While it can do many powerful things, which we’ll talk about, it’s also important to recognize the problems that can be built into it. This keynote will address the good, the bad, and the bias of AI.

AI can increase people’s productivity, but it can also perpetuate racism, sexism, and other harms. Bias has been found in prison sentencing algorithms and healthcare insurance claims, among many others.

In this talk, we’ll address how to uncover bias and deficiencies in AI from the beginning by looking at the design holistically, considering risk in new ways, and testing it well.

Key takeaways:
1. While AI is changing the world, it also keeps the biased systems humans created in place.
2. We can build better algorithms when we consider bias in the beginning and try to counter it.
3. There is hope for a better future!
