Bryan and Nicolette chatted with Nandini Easwar, CTO and Co-Founder of Speakfully, about becoming kinder and gentler with technology and the concept of data driven humanity. Bryan asked Nandini about how data can be used in a company to enhance inclusion- and what role does Al play in this?
How does it stay fair?
Easwar suggests this involves mining the data, creating a pattern and then presenting it to a human. Don’t let the Al do the analysis for you regarding bias. Al isn’t human. She shares an example of where algorithms and data don’t consider the human element and condition. While the data mining portion of your analytics probably can’t be manual, you can present that data reality to a human and now a human can determine whether there are problems or not.
