Featured Session: Unconscious Bias in Machine Learning Isn't Funny


Unconscious Bias in Machine Learning Isn't Funny

Machine Learning (ML) is one of the hottest areas in technology today. While your company plans to use Artificial Intelligence (AI) to change your industry’s game, how do you cultivate awareness of the impact of unconscious bias in training your ML systems? Join Sandy Carter, VP Amazon Web Services, one of the Top 39 Engineers per Business Insider and Kathy Klotz-Guest, author, Founder of Keeping it Human, and one of the top improv in business leaders in the world, as they share humorous stories along with the unfunny impacts of not having the right training approach for your ML models. In this session, you’ll learn to recognize and mitigate bias in ML training models (individually and organizationally) and to say “yes and” to new ways of thinking. ML bias isn’t fun; this session will be!
