Global business leaders have come to recognize artificial intelligence’s (AI) power to impact every thing around the globe. The challenge still remains with how to be successful with implementation and still maintain integrity. This interesting topic came to us from the Training magazine in their article, “Artificial Intelligence Strategic Partnerships Perspectives.”
Today’s leaders hold a significant responsibility for both delivering on AI’s promise and creating the ethical policies that foster reputable brands, diverse communities and thriving employees.
Even though leaders embrace the power of AI, they haven’t ignored (at least completely) the disruptive challenges it poses. One has been the subject of many articles here and other reliable sources: biased algorithms. For example, some organizations are using AI algorithms to identify qualified job candidates. The algorithms used to identify those candidates rely on training data sets. Unfortunately, if the dataset’s definition of a “good candidate” reflects a bias toward a gender, ethnicity or educational background, the pool of candidates will shrink to a gleaned subset that lacks diversity.
Finding that sweet spot is still a work in progress.
