||CLE Session 3: Teaching Machines Not to See Color [or Gender or Ethnicity]
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is used to make many decisions that directly affect real people; decisions about loans, jobs, advertising, medical treatments, etc. Originally touted as color-blind decision makers, many discriminatory patterns have emerged. This panel will examine how AI is used, the problems that have emerged, and how the risk of discrimination can be mitigated.
