Introduction to Artificial Intelligence – and how come AI systems can have a gender bias.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is finding its way into an increasing number ofareas ofwork and life. Growing numbers of AI models derived from data are being applied – most of them appearing to be black boxes. Why is it important that people can understand the reason an AI system makes a certain decision and that the basis of such decisions are adjustable? What can happen when data is used unreflectively to derive models will be illustrated by examples of gender bias.
