Overcoming Bias in AI

Artificial Intelligence is one of the biggest trends in IT today. This session is all about how we can work to overcome the challenges that confront IT professionals in the AI space. Chief among them is bias. We’re all humans and come to the proverbial “AI table” with inherent biases. This session will delve into how bias impacts facial recognition technology, for example, and how to mitigate it. We’ll discuss how to train data to remove unconscious bias, how to improve AI decision making, and how to find appropriate datasets for AI use cases and applications.
