AI bias continues to be a prominent topic of discussion in the marketplace. As mentioned in Issues 11, 10, and 8, facial recognition continues to be a hotly debated topic in the realm of artificial intelligence. However, the central question of Aaron Raj’s Tech Wire Asia article is “can ethical AI help overcome AI bias?” The answer in short is yes, but with adequate human oversight and monitoring systems. “When done right trustworthy AI can counter our human biases and ensure fairer outcomes for decisions that matter – employment, health, and wealth.”
However, another integral piece of the puzzle to create more ethical AI is for government policy to establish clear regulations and guidelines to promote more trustworthy behavior. From Malaysia to China to Europe, there has been a boom in ethical AI policy and regulations in recent months. Through an appropriate framework, businesses will be able to implement more robust and thoughtful practices surrounding their use of artificial intelligence and machine learning.
