Many of the algorithms that power AI are black boxes — proprietary formulas that don’t reveal how they work. If we don’t know why they reach the conclusions they do, can we ever trust them? It’s a fundamental ethical question of machine learning. Join us to learn more about the known consequences of these unseen algorithms, how to mitigate them, and whether we can truly develop transparency in artificial intelligence.
