A 360º framework to provide transparent, fair and trustworthy AI solutions
The advancement of digital transformation is promoting the acceptance of augmented intelligence capabilities that power cognitive enterprises. As such, more companies are adopting AI to make business-critical decisions. And while AI has the potential to reshape business outcomes, accelerate growth and reimagine processes that drive a competitive edge, the implications are far-reaching if AI decisions are biased, unfair, or lack explainability. Biased decisions have a detrimental impact on society, business performance and can have legal ramifications. Businesses must interpret the AI algorithmic decisions to ensure they are not encouraging biases , adhere to growing regulatory compliance and safeguard brand reputation.
- Social impact – Bias due to socioeconomic status, ethnicity, religion, gender, disability, etc. propagates from human decision-makers to AI models trained on past data and decisions. Biased AI model decisions impact individual well-being and can deprive them of critical opportunities.
- Business impact - The implications of algorithmic biased decisions adversely affect an organization's trustworthiness, brand reputation, revenue and cost an organization valued customers.
- Legal impact - There are rising regulatory concerns about AI algorithms propagating biases. Legislative laws such as the EU AI Act 2021 and the USA Algorithmic Accountability Act 2019 mandate that AI systems responsible for critical decisions undergo regular assessments against compliance requirements. Failing this, corporations would be levied heavy fines based on their revenue.
