Artificial Intelligence based discrimination: What should we do about it?

Chambre des Salariés


Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques based on big data and algorithmic processing are increasingly used to guide decisions in important societal spheres, including hiring decisions, university admissions, loan granting, and crime prediction. 
However, there are growing concerns regarding the epistemic and normative quality of AI evaluations and predictions. In particular, there is strong evidence that algorithms may sometimes amplify rather than eliminate existing bias and discrimination, and thereby have negative effects on social cohesion and on democratic institutions.
The presentation will discuss the likelihood of AI becoming an overpowering force that takes over the world, its potentially adverse impacts on the public and how we can prevent advances in AI from exacerbating existing systemic discrimination and social injustice. A question-and-answer period will follow the presentation.
