Meet the Expert: What to Do When AI Fails with Andrew Burt and Patrick Hall

Video description

Artificial intelligence and machine learning have at least one thing in common with traditional software systems: they fail. AI failures might consist of discriminatory behavior, privacy violations, or even security breaches that can lead to lawsuits, regulatory fines, and more. So what can organizations do to avoid these pitfalls?
