Machine Learning

teachable machine

As AI progresses, the great promise is that these machines alongside of us are able to think, imagine and see things in ways that we never have before. Which means that maybe we have some new, weird, seemingly implausible solution to climate change, maybe we have some radically different approach to dealing with incurable cancers. The real practical and wonderful promise is that machines help us be more creative and using that creativity we get to terrific solutions.

The coded gaze reflects the priorities, preferences and prejudices of those who have the power to shape technology

Scores like this — known as risk assessments — are increasingly common in courtrooms across the nation. They are used to inform decisions about who can be set free at every stage of the criminal justice system, from assigning bond amounts — as is the case in Fort Lauderdale — to even more fundamental decisions about defendants’ freedom. In Arizona, Colorado, Delaware, Kentucky, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Virginia, Washington and Wisconsin, the results of such assessments are given to judges during criminal sentencing."

inside the industry

there's not one final outcome of AI, there's a distribution of all possible outcomes. We're in a position right now where we can effect whether it evolves positively, in ways that help people, or in ways that overlook people, in ways that amplify human biases.
