Joachim Ganseman, Research consultant

AI systems are more and more expected to take autonomous decisions, often well hidden from plain view. This is not necessarily without danger. In this talk I'll give a high-level overview of some common pitfalls in AI-powered applications, that require more thought than many AI gurus would admit. On the menu: bias and fairness, confounding variables, adversarial attacks, ethics, explainability and interpretability, etc.

This talk shares some valuable lessons from the field, based on our own hands-on experience.
