Interactive Video Q+A
*Diverse and Inclusive Artificial Intelligence*
By Tess Posner, CEO AI4ALL
*Artificial intelligence could contribute an additional 1.2% to annual
gross domestic product growth over the next decade, according to a recent
McKinsey report. The report also predicts that about 70% of companies will
adopt at least one form of AI by 2030. As AI goes full steam ahead, it's
critical to ask the right questions while still in early stages: who is
building and shaping this important technology? Research shows that the AI
field doesn’t adequately reflect the broader population, which suggests
that globally, we’re missing out on the value that diverse teams bring to
AI development, implementation, and research. For example, in the US only
13% of AI CEOs are women, and only 2.6% of tenure-track engineering faculty
identify as African American and only 3.6% identify as Hispanic. When
diverse voices are left out of AI, the reliability and fairness of AI
systems come into question.*
