Responsible AI: Fairness, Transparency, Bias, and Explainability

From everyday applications to complex algorithms, technology has the potential to hide, accelerate and even deepen discrimination, while appearing neutral and even benevolent when compared to the racist practices of an earlier era. In this talk, I present some implications of Artificial Intelligence, exploring some examples where it fails and/or causes a negative impact. We'll look at some of the open source tools available today to try to see if the data or models we create is discriminatory if it's biased, and how we can mitigate it.
