@LoveAndDonuts AI is part of my job. I help facilitate the capabilities for scientists to develop and deploy AI. human input = perpetuated human bias AI models will only ever be as ethical and unbiased as the data being fed into it. Just like humans. t.co/SZd4dZHPA5
@emblem21CEO > "It’s like ‘let’s diversify our datasets. And that’s kind of ethics and fairness, right?’ But you can’t ignore social and structural problems." YES. Now *precisely* measure that structural boogeyman you say exists so I can hang you all by it. t.co/BCGuDgNNV2
