Event description
Come and join a panel of AI experts on Thursday 27th May to find out just why diversity is so important in Artificial Intelligence!

About this event

Between 2015 and 2019, global use of artificial intelligence grew by 270%.

Even if you haven’t watched CodedBias, you’ll be aware of ethical concerns, potential misuse of AI and loss of privacy in the workplace to be concerned.

One MIT study found that "gender classification systems sold by IBM, Microsoft, and Face++" were found to have "an error rate as much as 34.4 percentage points higher for darker-skinned females than lighter-skinned males." Samasource also references a Broward County, Florida, law enforcement program used to predict the likelihood of crime, which was found to "falsely flag black defendants as future criminals (...) at almost twice the rate as white defendants."
