Invasion of the Bias Snatchers

July 9, 2019

Computers might be perfect students, but when they have biased teachers, their purpose becomes their pitfall. If you’re worried about artificial intelligence taking over the world, remember: Computers are only as good as their makers—and they’re more human than you think.

In this episode, we talk to Sarah Ostadabbas (assistant professor of electrical and computer engineering), Byron Wallace (assistant professor of computer science and director of Bachelor of Science in Data Science), and Tina Eliassi-Rad (associate professor of computer science).

Litmus is produced and reported by Emily Arntsen and Aria Bracci. This episode was written and hosted by Aria Bracci with mixing by Anthony Pulido. Edited by David Filipov.
