    Seeing Through Human Eyes: The Power and Perils of AI

    In the age of intelligent machines, the most significant threat comes not from malicious machines, but from their human creators. How might we design AI systems that do not inherit human error and bias? We will discuss the process of developing machine learning systems – data gathering, model training, output generation, and human programming – and the principles of design that we must apply to these processes, in order to create AI systems that are truly beneficial for people.
