At Inspirefest 2018, Bharat Krish made a compelling case for how vital it is that AI is inclusive.

Already, artificial intelligence (AI) technology has begun to bleed into every facet of modern existence. Many customer support teams have integrated AI chatbots into their suite of outreach services. Meanwhile, significant strides have been made in getting autonomous vehicles on the road.

So really, the inevitable ubiquity of this technology cannot be denied. But do we risk allowing AI to amplify dangerous pre-existing biases? Yes, if we don’t go about things carefully, explained RefineAI co-founder and CEO Bharat Krish at Inspirefest 2018.

Krish outlined his company’s experience of finding glaring blind spots in AI algorithms, and the potentially disastrous consequences if these are left unchecked.
