People are slowly coming to realize that technology, especially artificial intelligence, is not neutral. It’s imbued with the same values, assumptions, and biases as its creators. However, AI has incredible potential to identify the hidden biases in your organization’s processes and products so that you can work to remove them. By removing bias, you’re increasing accuracy, which is not just better for society but also for your organization’s bottom line.

Kathy Baxter explains how to use AI to address bias in your organizations rather than perpetuate it.
