Implicit Bias - Deepstash
Implicit Bias

Implicit Bias

  • Implicit bias refers to people’s unconscious tendencies to make assumptions/associate stereotypes with others.
  • Example: An engineer who is often bitten by dogs believes that dogs are more aggressive than cats, even though that may not be scientifically true.
  • The problem: The engineer would believe that the ground truth is “dogs = aggressive” and thus fine-tuned her AI model to label dogs as being more aggressive than cats.
  • The solution: As implicit bias is unconscious to an individual, having multiple engineers code the AI and establishing proper peer review procedures would reduce such biases
