Accuracy and Ethics in AI Workshop

Weds., Sept. 18, 2019; 12:50-1:45 pm
Over the past decade AI has continued its steady march of progress. Near-human accuracy has been achieved on a wide variety of tasks from object recognition to natural language understanding, to machine translation. However, these advances have not come without cost. As organizations continue to adopt AI at ever-accelerating rates, we can either learn from history or condemn ourselves to repeat it. This session will explore exactly why even the most technically advanced organizations on the planet struggle with these issues. In a set of short lectures and hands-on exercises, attendees will learn to use a basic set of tools that can help to pre-emptively identify and avoid these and other ethical concerns. Topics covered include proper experimental setup, appropriate benchmarking, human-in-the-loop processes, and encoded biases.
Indico is the leading provider of Intelligent Process Automation (IPA) solutions. We help organizations turn process into profit by enabling them to automate manual, labor-intensive, document-based workflows. Our breakthrough in solving these challenges is an approach known as transfer learning, which allows users to train machine learning models with orders of magnitude less data than required by traditional rule-based techniques. With Indico, enterprises are now able to deploy AI to unstructured content challenges more effectively while eliminating many of the common barriers to adoption.
