NIST: Recommendations for Identifying and Managing Bias in AI

Organizations that fail to prevent bias from slipping into their artificial intelligence (AI) systems may soon find themselves in regulatory trouble. As we discussed in a previous post, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission announced in April that private companies that sell biased AI systems can be subject to laws under the FTC Act, which outlaws […]

Recommendations for Developing Machine Learning Operations (MLOps) 

Algorithms that automatically learn and improve decision-making without additional training use a process known as machine learning (ML), a field that represents a rapidly developing branch of artificial intelligence (AI). By 2022, the ML market is expected to skyrocket to USD $8.81 billion (up from about USD $1 billion five years ago).  Powered by data, ML […]

U.S. Standards Agency Announces New System To Measure Trust in AI

In order for humans to fully embrace artificial intelligence (AI), they need to trust it. While there hasn’t been a standard way for organizations to gage how much people trust their AI models, that could soon change. The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), an agency that falls under the U.S. Department of Commerce, […]

Six Ways Organizations Can Leverage Digital Transformation for Growth

Thousands of organizations all over the world underwent digital transformations during pandemic-related shutdowns as a means of survival. Now, as they emerge from lockdowns, many are beginning to use digital transformation as a tool for growth. Moving forward, organizational leaders need to determine key metrics that can help them meet their growth goals. Here are […]

U.S. Federal Trade Commission: Seven Ways to Help Ensure Fair AI Systems

In April, the European Union (EU) and the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) each released regulations aimed at curbing the potential risks of artificial intelligence (AI). While the FTC regulations apply nationally in the U.S., enforcement of the EU regulations is left to EU member states. Both regulations apply to private companies only, though they […]

Three Major Trends In Artificial Intelligence Regulation

Artificial intelligence (AI) regulations are coming. In March, five of the largest U.S. financial regulators sent banks an information request inquiring about how they are using artificial intelligence. Such a request indicates that the financial sector will soon be facing guidelines around the technology. Additionally, the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (FTC) released definitions in April […]

Four Machine Learning Questions Organizations Should Ask

Machine learning can deliver major benefits for organizations looking to scale their operations, especially those who continue to experience disruptions from the COVID-19 pandemic. However, there are plenty of challenges that come along with implementing this type of artificial intelligence. Before organizations jump headfirst, there are four major machine learning questions they should consider. 1) […]

How Institutional Review Boards Can Reduce AI Risks 

Organizations are increasingly adopting artificial intelligence (AI) standards to mitigate risks associated with the technology, such as its propensity for bias. While developing AI standards is necessary, they also need to be upheld in order to be effective. To do so, organizations can consider establishing a body of experts charged with overseeing AI standards and […]

What is ‘Causal Inference’ and Why is it Key to Machine Learning?

Unlike human beings, machine learning algorithms are bad at determining what’s known as ‘causal inference,’ the process of understanding the independent, actual effect of a certain phenomenon that is happening within a larger system. For example, a human watching a golfer swing a golf club intuitively understands that the golfer’s arms are causing the club […]
