Global Bigdata Conference


What happens when robots take our jobs, or take on military roles, or drive our vehicles? When we ask these questions about the rapidly-expanding role of AI, there are others we're often overlooking--like the subject of a WEF paper released this week: how do we prevent discrimination and marginalization of humans in artificial intelligence? Machines are increasingly automating decisions. In New York City, for instance, machine learning systems have been used to decide where garbage gets collected, how many police officers to send to which neighborhoods, and whether a teacher should keep their job. These decision-making technologies bring up equally important questions.
