Episode 4: Why I’m Excited About This Episode
By Ronald J. Coleman
Our fourth episode, “Artificial Intelligence and Bias”, features guest speakers Mutale Nkonde, Todd Marlin, and Avi Gesser. My introduction discusses why “I think this will be an interesting episode”:
“First, AI is obviously all around us from use in entertainment, to shopping, and other forms of automation, and I think it’s important for us to be aware of the potential for bias. Second, in Episode 2 on privacy, one of our speakers in that episode, Travis LeBlanc, mentioned facial recognition and the possibility of bias. I would have liked to have delved deeper into that issue when it was raised in Episode 2, so now I will get my chance. Finally, law enforcement is also using AI, and with criminal convictions potentially at issue, I think it will be interesting to hear more about how bias may be impacting outcomes.”
