Technical Paper on Algorithmic Bias

Artificial intelligence (AI) promises better, more intelligent decision-making.

Governments are using AI to make decisions in welfare, policing and many other areas. Meanwhile, the private sector has readily adopted AI in to its business models. However, using AI carries with it the risk of algorithmic bias. Unless we fully understand and address this risk, the promise of AI will be hollow.

This project simulated a typical decision-making process and explored how algorithmic bias can ‘creep in’ to AI systems and, most importantly, how this problem can be addressed.

This project was completed in 2020.
