BOSTON (PRWEB) October 12, 2020

AI models reflect existing biases if these biases are not explicitly eliminated by the data scientists developing the systems. Constant monitoring of the entire operation is required to detect these shifts. The remedy for such lack of focus is training.

Mercator Advisory Groups latest research Report, Tracking Mistakes in AI: Use Vigilance to Avoid Errors, discusses modes in which data models can deliver biased results, and the ways and means by which financial institutions (FIs) can correct for these biases.

AI solutions can unwittingly go astray, comments Tim Sloane, the Reports author and director of Mercator Advisory Groups Emerging Technology Advisory Service and its VP Payments Innovation. Applying AI to issues that can have large negative social consequences should be avoided. One example of this is using AI to implement the business plan of social networks Facebook, You Tube, and others, as presented in the documentary The Social Dilemma. The documentary contends that social networks have optimized AI to drive advertising revenue at the expense of the individual and society. To drive revenue, social networks build psychographic models for each user to predict exactly which content will best engage that user.
