Generative Age with Ken Shelton
AI Bias and Discrimination
In this episode, we’re joined by Ken Shelton, a globally recognized speaker, educator, and advocate for equity and inclusion in education and technology to discuss a topic that's often overlooked, but is of utmost significance: the inherent discrimination and bias in artificial intelligence systems.
AI's potential in revolutionizing sectors from education to healthcare is undeniable. But without diligent oversight, these systems can perpetuate and exacerbate societal prejudices. In this episode, we'll explore how biases get embedded into AI systems, the real-world consequences of such biases for educators who might unknowingly use biased AI tools in their classrooms, and the importance of diversity and inclusivity in the development and application of these technologies. This episode is not just a deep dive into the challenges; it's also a roadmap to solutions on how to be more conscious consumers and creators of AI. With Ken's expertise and passion, we unpack strategies to combat bias, foster ethical AI development, and create a more equitable technological landscape.
