Breakthrough days: Beneficial AI + gender data
As artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning replace manual design and human oversight, society gains efficiency. However, the inputs used to determine these machine-made choices rely on flawed data that lacks critical information about female preferences, behaviors, and needs.
AI is learning gender bias from humans. Data with implicit gender bias may lead to biased analytics and predictive models, biased inferences and insights, biased policies and solutions, and ultimately a gender-biased world. However, if harnessed for good, AI and machine learning can create a future in which unbiased insights tell the story of all humanity —not just a subset of it.
