From predictive policing to automated credit scoring, algorithms applied on a massive scale, gone unchecked, represent a serious threat to our society. Dr. Rumman Chowdhury, director of Machine Learning Ethics, Transparency and Accountability at Twitter, joins Azeem Azhar to explore how businesses can practice responsible AI to minimize unintended bias and the risk of harm.
They also discuss:
- How you can assess and diagnose bias in unexplainable “black box” algorithms.
- Why responsible AI demands top-down organizational change, implementing new metrics and systems of redress.
- How Twitter led an audit of its own image-cropping algorithm that was alleged to bias white faces over people of color.
- The emerging field of “Responsible Machine Learning Operations” (MLOps).
