The AI ‘Black Box’

A presentation at The Conf in in São Paulo, State of São Paulo, Brazil by Carla Vieira

As humans we’re inherently biased. Sometimes it’s explicit and other times it’s unconscious, but as we move forward with technology how do we keep our biases out of the algorithms we create? We need to have a conversation about how AI ‘Black Box’ should be governed and ask who is responsible for overseeing the ethical standards of these algorithms; and the need for gender balance — having access to large and diverse points of view helps to train algorithms to maintain the principle of fairness.
