Ethical AI

Ethical AI

Learn how ethical issues can impact machine learning projects and AI systems.

About this Mission

Machine Learning can automate pattern finding to assist human decision making, but sometimes it uncovers known and unknown biases in problem framing, data collection, data processing, and the application of modeling results.  Resolving these problems in a fair and trusted way is at the heart of Ethical AI.

This mission explores ethical considerations in the model development life cycle.  This increased awareness will help you to address a variety of ethical issues such as fairness, transparency, and labor displacement in your projects. You will take away a framework for identifying ethics-related risks and to inform the creation of an ethical AI policy for model use and governance.

This mission uses a seminar format and assumes no previous knowledge or experience with AI.

Format and duration: virtual instructor-led, hands-on, 3.5 hours

By the end of this mission, you will be able to:

  • Identify common areas of ethical risk in the use of AI
  • Examine your problem framing for potential ethical issues
  • Weigh different definitions of fairness (individuals or groups) for applicability
  • Select appropriate measures of success for your models
  • Determine which protected or sensitive data types to use or avoid
  • Assess modeling data for undesired bias, including unintended proxies
  • Evaluate model transparency and interpretability
  • Consider governance and policy issues around process, documentation, disclosure, and responsibility

This mission is intended for anyone who has an interest in the ethical considerations of AI.
