Detecting and mitigating bias in natural language processing (Brookings)

Aylin Caliskan Unsupervised artificial intelligence (AI) models that automatically discover hidden patterns in natural language datasets capture linguistic regularities that reflect human biases, such as racism, sexism, and ableism. These unsupervised AI models, namely word embeddings, provide the foundational, general-purpose, numeric representation of language for machines to process textual data.

ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE – AI Has Sped Up Biological Discovery by Cracking the Mystery of Proteins (Russ Altman, HAI Stanford University)

Proteins are the molecular machinery of life. DNA blueprints tell cells how to make a given protein by stringing amino acids together like a necklace of different-sized beads. But how these molecular machines function depends on how these necklaces form into complex and convoluted three-dimensional structures, a process known as protein folding. Experimental scientists have […]
