Employees fail to recognise risks of biased algorithms

New research from analytics automation company Alteryx, Inc. shows that almost half of employees now believe that data ethics are “irrelevant” to their role.
Alteryx claims that as a result of poor training programmes, AI projects will continue to pose an ethical minefield for companies throughout the UK, with AI projects – and associated benefits – falling at the first hurdle.
Trustworthy AI is rooted in quality information, but with untrained employees delivering dirty data, inconsistent, biased and unusable AI is the end result.

ACR urges radiologists to take charge of artificial intelligence development, protect patient safety

“Radiologists must prepare to serve as the imaging AI experts, gatekeepers of which AI technologies are purchased by their practices, and monitors of AI performance in patient care,” Keith Dreyer, DO, PhD, the Data Science Institute’s chief science officer, said in a statement. “Not doing so is to risk patient safety and algorithm effectiveness.”

ACR said the first federated learning experiment will kick off in early 2022, hoping to produce a “highly accurate” COVID-19 classification model through industry collaboration. Participants will gain access to de-identified…

Explainable AI is about to become mainstream: The AI audits are here – Impact of AI recruitment bias audit in New York…

A few weeks ago, I said that we will be increasingly faced with AI audits and that I hoped such regulation would be pragmatic.  (Could AI audits end up like GDPR).
That post proved prophetic
The New York city council has passed a new bill which requires mandatory yearly audits against bias on race or gender for users of automated AI based hiring tools
Candidates can ask for an explanation or a human review
‘AI’ includes all technologies – from decision trees to neural networks
The regulation is needed and already, there is discussion about adding ageism and disabilities to this…
