Why fairness in AI?

Throughout history, the notion of fairness has evolved, adapting to the changing dynamics of societies and cultures. We’ve witnessed numerous instances of unfairness that have left an indelible mark on human behavior. The question arises: Have these biases and inequities been inadvertently encoded into the AI technology we rely on today?

In our recent webinar, we embarked on a journey to dissect the concept of fairness within AI systems. We delved into thought-provoking questions such as “What exactly is fairness, and how can it be quantified?” We also explored the intricate ways algorithms can introduce biases and scrutinized the potential sources of bias lurking within datasets. Most importantly, we offered practical insights on how to steer clear of making unfair decisions within AI frameworks.
