Four Types of Machine Learning Bias

AI models comprise algorithms and data, and they are only as good as their underlying mathematics and the data they are trained on. When things go wrong with AI it’s because either the model of the world at the heart of the AI is flawed, or the algorithm driving the model has been insufficiently or incorrectly trained. Download the new whitepaper from Alegion that can help AI project leads and business sponsors better understand the four distinct types of bias that can affect machine learning, and how each can be mitigated.

From Out of Nowhere: the Unstoppable Rise of the Data Catalog
