In the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), there’s a fact that often gets overshadowed by the excitement surrounding technological advancements: AI is only as good as the data it learns from. Behind every intelligent system, groundbreaking algorithm or futuristic application lies a vast reservoir of data that serves as the lifeblood of AI development and performance. This simple yet profound concept underscores the critical importance of high-quality, diverse and ethically sourced data in shaping the capabilities and limitations of AI technologies. Financial Express brought this interesting topic to our attention in their article, “Rekindling creativity: AI only as effective as the data quality.

From machine learning algorithms to natural language processing systems, AI models rely on vast amounts of data to learn patterns, make predictions and generate insights. Whether it’s recognizing faces in images, translating languages or recommending personalized content, AI systems are trained on massive datasets meticulously curated to represent real-world scenarios and variations. However, the quality and relevance of the data used for training have a direct impact on the accuracy, fairness and robustness of AI applications.

As always, the biggest challenge is that most organizations have little knowledge on how AI systems make decisions and how to interpret AI and machine learning results. Explainable AI allows users to comprehend and trust the results and output created by machine learning algorithms. Explainable AI is used to describe an AI model, its expected impact and its potential biases.
