Bias 24 May 2023

This talk consists of two videos:

5.1 Overview and examples of bias - Victor Zuanazzi

In this talk, Victor Zuanazzi, Machine Learning Scientist at Aidence, defines bias in artificial intelligence and explains how it differs from our understanding of bias in society. He outlines the concept of variance, an essential component when discussing bias in AI, then provides examples of bias and variance from news and literature. In the second half of the course, Victor looks at the possible ways in which bias can manifest during the development of an AI medical device, and outlines corresponding mitigation methods.

5.2 Ethical AI - Reid Blackman

Applications of artificial intelligence/machine learning is growing rapidly. There are a great many benefits that can come from such endeavours. There are also a host of ethical risks.
