Bias in artificial intelligence is more pernicious than threats to labor, according to Google AI lead John Giannandrea argues. Storytelling, as a practice of deconstructing complex technology to expose the underlying assumptions driving algorithms, is a potential remedy.
Many of the most powerful emerging machine-learning techniques are so complex and opaque in their workings that they defy careful examination (see “The Dark Secret at the Heart of AI”). To address this issue, researchers are exploring ways to make these systems give some approximation of their workings to engineers and end users.
