Session: Impact of AI on Society
Today, Artificial Intelligence technologies are at the forefront across the globe and across industries. Each of us interact with a product or service powered by AI on a daily basis. AI and Machine Learning have provided us with a range of useful and efficient products in the last decade. However, there is a bias created alongside that has been carried forward in forms not directly visible to consumers of such technologies. Historical, societal, gender, racial, and cultural biases have made their way into models we consume each day impacting our everyday decisions. A note on overcoming such biases for the future generations of researchers, practitioners, and consumers will help the world move towards a much-needed equilibrium.
