AI & Bias: closing the data gap

We like to think of data as being objective, but the answers we get are often shaped by the questions we ask. Beyond that, the data sets themselves could also be limited or biased. As algorithms take over many of our decision-making processes, it matters more than ever which assumptions we build our models on. If data containing inherent bias is used in self-learning systems, the bias will be magnified. Beyond deciding which music you listen to, other impacts could include your next job, your health care eligibility, insurance premiums and credit ratings.
