For our chat today, our friend and collaborator Daniel Caselles also joins us. Our conversations center about the topic of Bias on Artificial Intelligence, how it works and what has been done to overcome it.
During our conversation we touch several related topics, and the logic of why and how Bias in produced and methods to counteract it. Here, you can learn more about how it happens, and have a nice time while doing it.
