We often hear about gender inequities in the workplace. There are many contributing factors, but could our technology be partly to blame? A recent study reveals how undetected bias in training data can reinforce gender stereotypes to, “a disturbing degree.” On August 17, Marketing Director Emily Maxie will discuss the pitfalls of assuming AI is inherently unbiased and the steps being taken to address such biases at Scenic City Summit.
In this session, audience members will learn:
- About the dangers of unconscious bias creeping its way into AI
- How to prevent bias from impacting your application
- Ways machine learning is being used to combat bias
Scenic City Summit is a one-day event for developers and IT professionals in the Chattanooga area, which is presented by ChaTech.
