Stephen Hawking in 2015 said, “A super intelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing its goals, and if those goals aren’t aligned with ours, we’re in trouble".
With just 12% of women in the field of AI, hardly resembling the general population that the technology is applied to or will be in the near future. With women and minority underrepresented, how can we possibly align those goals and ensure that our near future intelligence systems are designed to be inclusive.
From data to system bias, machines learn from content that we humans provide, prejudices and discrimination included, conscious as well as unconscious ones.
Beyond the concerns of bias is the much needed broader conversation towards ethical and responsible AI that attempts to address inequalities and the repercussions of these machines.
This talk is a start to open up these conversations with leading women in the AI fields together with the general public in the context of mobile World Congress.
