Innovation & AI, bias is all around

Ask a child to make a drawing of a professor and the kid will likely picture a man with wild curly hair and round glasses. It is the prototype of a genius. Our brain forms automatic stereotyped and intuitive thoughts. This can be controlled by more conscious perception, but that part of the brain happens to be lazy and slow.

On all levels—societal, organizational, and individual—development and innovation are influenced by bias. Lokke Moerel, professor of Global ICT Law and senior of counsel with Morrison & Foerster, will discuss how biases creep into the innovation processes in the domain of Artificial Intelligence. What are the consequences and how to counter the effects of unconscious prejudiced judgment? And: can AI even be deployed to counter existing biases?  How to safeguard and improve equality when exploring new territory?
