IQT Explains: The Importance of Bias Testing in AI Assurance
The rising use of artificial intelligence in sensitive industries such as recruitment, criminal justice, and healthcare has raised debate about bias and impartiality. However, human decision-making in these and other disciplines might be incorrect due to unconscious individual and social biases. In this IQT Podcast episode we are joined by Andrea Brennen, VP of Design and Visualization at IQT labs, Andrew Burt, Managing partner at BNH.AI and chief legal officer at Immuta, and Patrick Hall, a principal scientist in BNH.AI, visiting professor in the Dept. of Decision Sciences at George Washington University. They will share insights and knowledge on how we test and assess AI technology to minimize unwanted biases and also consider legalities and ethics. Listen to this episode if you're interested in AI technology and want to discover how it's being evaluated from a legal and ethical stance.
IQT Explains: AI Assurance
When it comes to software, one thing we know for sure is that sometimes our tools are going to fail, and introducing Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning into software tools creates additional vulnerabilities. In Part 1 of our two-part series discussing AI Assurance, we detail methods and findings from a recent audit that IQT Labs conducted on FakeFinder, an open source deep learning tool that predicts whether or not a video is a deepfake. Tune in to learn about our audit approach and overall findings from our IQT Labs experts Andrea Brennen and Ryan Ashley.
