The application of AI algorithms in domains such as criminal justice, credit scoring, and hiring holds unlimited promise. At the same time, it raises legitimate concerns about algorithmic fairness. There’s a growing demand for fairness, accountability, and transparency from ML systems. And we need to remember that training data isn’t the only source of possible bias and adversarial contamination. It can also be introduced through inappropriate data handling, inappropriate model selection, or incorrect algorithm design. We need a pipeline that’s open, transparent, secure, and fair and that fully integrates into the AI lifecycle.

Animesh Singh examines how to build such a pipeline while leveraging open source projects. Such a pipeline requires a robust set of bias and adversarial checkers, debiasing, and more.

This session is sponsored by IBM.
