Algorithms influence our lives: they decide what videos we watch next, and whether someone is eligible for parole. Yet every day, we hear new stories on how AI discriminates and amplifies bias. How can we build AI that is worthy of our trust? The free software movement was founded on principles protecting user rights (to use, modify, and distribute software). Through mechanisms like open source licenses, transparency, and collaboration, open source thrived and transformed our digital world. AI is at a similar crossroad – staged to change the digital landscape, but limited by questions of ethics and user rights. We have an opportunity to take lessons from open source to protect our rights while innovating towards an AI revolution. --- This session has not been presented before, however I will be presenting a version at COSCUP 2020 (Taiwan, Aug 2020). If selected, I hope to adapt this for a European audience and build on what was presented on COSCUP based on feedback and new work.
