Notes on AI Bias

Machine learning is the new centre of tech, and like all big new things there are issues. ‘AI bias’ is much-discussed right now: machine learning finds patterns but sometimes it finds the wrong one, and it can be hard to tell.

There are lots of experiments - some things will be the toasters or benders of the future, and some will be the electric can-opener.
