Caroline Criado Perez is a writer, journalist and feminist campaigner. She has written two books: Do It Like A Woman and Invisible Women. In her most recent book Invisible Women: Exposing Data Bias in a World Designed for Men she describes how very old data bias can affect women today. In this episode, Sheana learns about the different ways data bias is affecting women today, from trivial things such as phone size to not so trivial things such as seat belt safety. Caroline tells all this and more in this episode of Innovation For All Podcast.
Osonde Osoba, an engineer at the RAND Corporation and a professor at the Pardee RAND Graduate School, joins Sheana Ahlqvist in today’s episode of Innovation For All Podcast to talk about fairness in Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. AI has the ability to seriously impact our lives, which is why Osonde is pushing for systems that are accurate, unbiased, and flexible.
Discover what areas we should be wary when handing over the decision-making to AI’s, why this isn’t just a technical issue, but also political, and who should we put in charge of these systems. Learn also the importance of accountability, ethics, privacy, and regulation in AI systems.
IN THIS EPISODE YOU’LL LEARN:
The difference between Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence
Should AI systems intentionally be made to ‘align with our comfort’?
What roles do the legislators, policy makers, etc. do?
Strategies to protect Data Privacy in AI and ML models
Regulatory rules between the developers and the users
If technology changes so rapidly, how can regulators keep up?
In this episode of Innovation for All, host Sheana Ahlqvist talks to Dr. Jutta Treviranus, Director of the Inclusive Design Research Centre at OCAD University in Toronto. Dr. Treviranus explains how traditional approaches to business, design practices, and research can results in suboptimal or unfair systems. They discuss what inclusive design is, why it is so important, and how we can design systems that accommodate everyone.
Dr. Treviranus also reimagines the future of education. They cover her efforts to incorporate inclusivity into the current change-resistant educational system, her “Unlearning and Questioning” course, and her most recent project: developing a lab school for inclusive life-long learning.
