There is little doubt that artificial intelligence technologies will be transformational. Breathtaking advances will be made, extraordinary wealth will be created, and many of our social and institutional structures will be transformed.

RSVP Now for AI Design Sessions at GDDF 2022!

However, many of these machine learning tools and approaches have the capacity for inequitable outcomes due to humans unconsciously embedding bias in AI technology during data collection, model design or end-use applications. AI uses are highlighting instances of inequitable design and impact.

      I doubt your application will be relevant. This opportunity is for Artificial Intelligence Companies that already have computing infrastructure and data analytics capacity.
