Today, if you stop and ask anyone working in a technology company, “What is the one thing that would help them change the world or make them grow faster than anyone else in their field?” The answer would be Data. Yes, data is everything. Because data can essentially change, cure, fix and support just about any problem. Data is the truth behind everything from finding a cure for cancer to studying the shifting weather patterns. However, despite this promise, there is a global sense of mistrust. Outside of the tech, business, and scientific worlds, people are asking, “What is data? How is my data being used? And how is this impacting my future and community?”. Apart from aspects of privacy and security, another concern is how they introduce biases in the context of race, culture, and diversity.
Come attend this session, where I take you through a journey of discovery. I debunk some of the myths surrounding AI and discuss how AI model training works with real life examples. Then, I highlight the current state of AI; and its impact on race, culture, and diversity. Finally, I address how to make AI safe for humans; and as technologists what we could do to make an impact on the community surrounded by AI-based systems.
