A biased model that works for some users, and not others, is a failed model. Or a model that wasn’t sourced responsibly can be a poor reflection of company values and a nightmare with the media. It’s helpful to remember that AI reflects the people and the company that build it: when something goes wrong, it shows something may also be wrong internally.
