Exploring Ethics: Autonomous Bias Detection in a world of Sensational Headlines
In a world of clickbait news, it is hard for people to receive objective information without reacting emotionally to provocative text. This talk will outline how VeriCrypt autonomously measures objectivity in news from 30,000 providers using Artificial Intelligence.
Tamara will talk about the ethical issues of doing this work and the steps they take to mitigate the effects of human bias. She will specifically discuss the role of blockchain, the power of automation, the challenges of validating algorithms, and navigating human biases. VeriCrypt equips news providers with tools to make objective content, for a future with a higher standard of news.
