In a world that is being increasingly run on artificial intelligence, do we understand how algorithms make their decisions? In situations where humans have trouble making the right choices for culture—including race, language, accessibility, and equality—the algorithms we use should also face the same questions.

Camille Eddy walks you through how the services we all use everyday have adapted machine learning to become more inclusive. Camille also explains what we can do to create culturally sensitive computer intelligence and why that is important for the future of AI.
