Practical Pragmatic Approach to Responsible AI


Speaker(s): Dr. Scott Zoldi Chief Analytics Officer, FICO
Focus on the dangers of AI is at an all-time high with researchers, companies, and the public all increasingly concerned with improperly built automated decisioning that negatively impacts human lives. These concerns will be reviewed in the context of the principles of Responsible AI including Robust AI, Explainable AI, Ethical AI, and Auditable AI. Within the talk we will explore methods of interpretable ML, transparency, and rigorous bias mitigation methods. Further, we introduce an AI model development governance framework to move from admiring the problem to focusing on re-establishing trust and proof of work in meeting Responsible AI standards.
