Timnit Gebru on the limits of Artificial Intelligence
By Chine Labbe, Visiting Journalist at Cornell Tech's Digital Life Initiative
In this episode, we speak with Timnit Gebru, a research scientist in the Ethical Artificial Intelligence team at Google AI. We talk about algorithmic biases, and Gebru explains why she created the group "Black in AI", to address the lack of diversity in the field. She calls for a standardization of algorithms, and cautions against focusing on making them more fair, without thinking about whether they should exist in the first place.
