Recording: Algorithms, Unconscious Bias, & AI, Mar 13, 2018

AI is beginning to show racist and sexist associations, and it learned it by watching us. In a world where tech leadership is skewed 80% men and 83% percent white, and we are becoming increasingly more reliant on AI, how can we increase representation in our tech tools? Algorithms use data & benchmarks based on a past that we are trying to move away from. We either recognize the bias that is built into our daily culture, or we relive our past mistakes.
