10 Brief Points on
Artificial Intelligence, Bias, and Algorithms
11 July 2023
AI is a computer science domain making machines imitate human intelligence.
Subset of AI, it learns from data to improve tasks autonomously.
AI uses algorithms, sets of rules, to analyze data and make decisions.
Algorithms learn from labeled data to predict outcomes.
They discover patterns in unlabeled data.
When algorithms generate unfair or prejudiced outcomes.
Can be data bias, algorithmic bias, or societal bias.
AI can inadvertently amplify human biases present in data.
Techniques are being developed to identify and reduce AI bias.
Call for algorithms to be understandable and explainable to mitigate bias.
