Executive Roundtable on Promoting Diverse Voices and Fairness in AI
December 1, 2022 — Asia Society Northern California hosted Diyi Yang, Assistant Professor Computer Science Professor, Natural Language Processing Group, Stanford University and Michael Bernstein, Associate Professor of Computer Science and STMicoelectronics Faculty Scholar at Stanford University, for an Executive Roundtable on Promoting Diverse Voices and Fairness in AI.
Speakers explained how bias and discrimination is encoded in AI algorithms and discussed the possibility of new AI approaches to promote fairness by including diverse voices and detecting different forms of toxicity. They zoomed in on jury learning, a supervised machine learning approach that resolves label disagreements explicitly through the metaphor of a jury and talked about future directions and solutions that can be taken to mitigate biases in AI systems.
