Artificial intelligence: How to avoid racist algorithms

"...many of the algorithms that make decisions about our lives - from what we see on the internet to how likely we are to become victims or instigators of crime - are trained on data sets that do not include a diverse range of people."
Suresh Venkatasubramanian states, "...bias, or skew, in decision-making will shift from things we recognise as human prejudice to things we no longer recognise and therefore cannot detect - because we will take the decision-making for granted."
Suresh Venkatasubramanian offers a number solutions:
*better and more diverse data sets with which to train the algorithm
*sharing best practice among software vendor
*building algorithms which explain their decision making
The Algorithmic Justice League (AJL) was launched by Joy Buolamwini, a postgraduate student at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, to work to end algorithmic bias.
