Artificial Intelligence Demystified

robot_working_at_desk_14615Thank you to Jonathan Koren for his Algorithm Transparency . . . or Paying Attention To The Man Behind The Curtain. I have new faith in the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI), as well as more respect for FaceBook and their transparency.

Koren points out that AI is not magic. Instead, it automates “a human’s poorly defined goals with all the assumptions and biases therein.”  I love that!  We need humans involved AND must mitigate human assumptions and biases.

Applause for Koren’s challenge to the community: “Among ourselves, we’re pretty open with what we do and how we do it. Perhaps it’s time we level with general public as well.”
