What can artificial intelligence do for fairness and equality?

Challenges

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE IS A SOURCE OF PROGRESS
Artificial intelligence will change many things in our lives. For example in Health, better diagnostic and treatments will be achieved by applying advanced machine learning techniques to high-dimension quality medical datasets.
BUT THERE IS BIAS
IN DATA AND ALGORITHMS
Algorithms are trained on historical data.  However data can contain bias against people of different race, gender, age, or social background. Algorithms will not only reproduce but amplify this learnt bias, producing potentially discriminatory outcomes for entire groups of people.

How everything started

"There are moments when one wishes to give and share  …but for which cause and how can one have an impact ?  Excited by the possibilities offered by Data, I became concerned by its potential biases. With Tanya, Lawrence, Pascale and  help from the Fondation de France, I created Fondation Abeona."
