What does it Mean for AI to be I?

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 3:20 PM PDT  
Elite 1-3  
Artificial Intelligence is here and is here for good! The days of watching Ai from the windows hoping that your favorite company doesn’t install a ChatBot are over! As an individual in the Accessibility industry this leads to so many questions! What does it mean for Artificial Intelligence to be inclusive? How do you measure whether an Artificial Intelligence is Accessible or not? Are there biases that are inherent to Artificial Intelligence and cannot be removed? How will Artificial Intelligence impact people with regular intelligence? Is there something else we’re missing? Artificial Intelligence is growing rapidly in excitement, adoption, and... public concern. This session will give a tech newbie friendly introduction into Artificial Intelligence, focusing on how it is trained! As we explore we will see a variety of opportunities for Accessibility, Inclusivity and Bias issues to creep in throughout multiple points in this process including prompt, response, and in how those responses are delivered. Finally, we will discuss potential resolutions to some of these issues, including training data based, a discussion of how more inclusive models can be built, and how some issues are destined to remain issues for the foreseeable future.
