Made by Humans - The AI Condition

Author(s): Ellen Broad

Social Thought | Byron Writers Festival 2018

AI can be all too human- quick to judge, capable of error, vulnerable to bias. It's made by humans after all. Humans design the systems and tools that make new forms of AI faster. Humans are the data sources that make AI smarter. Humans will make decisions about how to use AI. The laws and standards, the tools, the ethics. Who benefits. Who gets hurt.

Made by Humansexplores our role in automation and the responsibilities we must take on. Roaming from Australia to the UK and the US, Broad talks to world-leading experts in AI and history about what we need to do next. A personal, thought-provoking examination of humans as data and humans as the designers of systems that try to understand us.
