The Challenge to Build Unbiased Artificial Intelligence Algorithms | EP19

The average person is so accustomed to seeing the results of artificial intelligence algorithms, like Amazon purchasing recommendations and Facebook ads, that it is easy to overlook the potential harm of these systems. In this episode, APU professor Cynthia Gentile talks to professor and author Dr. Robin Zebrowski about how inherent bias is built into artificial intelligence algorithms. Learn about the complexities of trying to correct or retrain these massive data sets, the discriminatory dangers of facial recognition technology, the invasive nature of speech recognition software, and why the government must heavily regulate Big Tech to protect how data is used.
