Let the data do the talking
Depending on where you get your information, artificial intelligence will either unite or destroy us.
But we think the case for unite is far stronger than the case for divide. Take a global tech giant, Microsoft, for example.
The image below is a link to a video from Microsoft’s Seeing AI that helps a blind person navigate life. This is particularly important at the moment when diversity in the workplace is such a hot topic. But many often limit the topic to the traditional categories.
By developing a product with someone who is blind, Microsoft not only created a more inclusive workplace, they created a more inclusive product.
Here’s the issue. The same company created a chatbot in 2016 and released it to the public. Within 24 hours, the chatbot was racist, sexist and essentially biased at all levels.
