Reducing AI Bias with Rejection Option-based Classification

Recently, I started writing a series of posts exploring bias in AI and different ways to mitigate it in a workflow in greater detail. In my last two blogs, I covered reweighing as a mitigation technique within the pre-processing stage of modeling, and adversarial debiasing during the in-processing (model training) stage of the machine learning workflow.
The third stage in the machine learning (ML) pipeline where we can intervene to reduce bias is called post-processing. Post-processing algorithms are mitigation steps that can be applied to the model predictions. On Fairness and Calibration [1], Equality of Opportunity in Supervised Learning [2] and Decision Theory for Discrimination-aware Classification [3] are among the different post-processing bias mitigation techniques proposed from academic literature.

Making Sales More Efficient: Lead Qualification Using AI

If you were to ask any organization today, you would learn that they are all becoming reliant on Artificial Intelligence Solutions and using AI to digitally transform in order to bring their organizations into the new age. AI is no longer a new concept, instead, with the technological advancements that are being made in the realm of AI, it has become a much-needed business facet.

AI has become easier to use and implement than ever before, and every business is applying AI solutions to their processes. Organizations have begun to base their digital transformation strategies around AI and the way in which they conduct their business. One of these business processes that AI has helped transform is lead qualifications.

Amsterdam And Helsinki Launch Open AI Registers

Amsterdam and Helsinki both launched an Open AI Register at the Next Generation Internet Summit. According to sources, these two cities are the first in the world that are aiming to be open and transparent about the use of algorithms and AI in the cities.

Currently, in the beta version, Algorithm Register is an overview of the artificial intelligence systems and algorithms used by the City of Amsterdam. The register is an effort to show where the cities are currently making use of AI and how the algorithms work.

Jan Vapaavuori, Mayor of Helsinki stated, “Helsinki aims to be the city in the world that best capitalises on digitalisation. Digitalisation is strongly associated with the utilisation of artificial intelligence. With the help of artificial intelligence, we can give people in the city better services available anywhere and at any time. In the front rank with the City of Amsterdam, we are proud to tell everyone openly what we use Artificial Intelligence for.”

Fact-Based AI In A Nutshell

Using Fact-Based Modelling to Kickstart One-Shot Learning

An earlier article, Fact-Based AI — Improving on a Knowledge Graph, I provided a vision for Fact-Based Modelling’s future in AI while providing background knowledge to digest. Here we get straight to the facts.

It has become apparent within AI research that Machine Learning (ML), Deep Learning (DL), and Neural Networks, in general, are not mechanisms that lend themselves readily to “one-shot learning”.

Neural Networks, in general, must be trained on large sets of training data resulting in a mechanism which provides a probabilistic result based on live data that approximates the training data set.

Train a suitable neural network on a set of images of a panda, then provide a new image of a panda and the neural network will give a probability of what it believes the new image to be, and hopefully that prediction is ‘a panda’.

The less training data provided the neural network, no matter how optimised it is in its inner structure, the less chance that it will provide a favourable result. That is, you cannot reliably provide a suitable neural network with the picture of just one panda and expect it to recognise another and different picture of a panda. In general, it cannot learn a concept, or set of rules, in one shot.

This is heavily contrasted with human learning, in which a person can readily grasp and apply knowledge learned, having only been introduced to the problem space once. This is true over a vast domain of problem spaces.

One-shot learning is a recognised problem for Machine Learning and Deep Learning, and experts in the field are working on ways to overcome that problem. It seems unlikely to me that ML/DL strategies will get to Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) without some form of one-shot learning.

A problem within ML/DL approaches is that data, by way of accumulated weightings, is passed through a network of nodes and where little logic is applied to the data at each node, but rather statistics-based math is applied to the values of the accumulated weightings received by the node. The result of the applied statistical math over input data provides output data graded by probabilities, providing a probabilistic logic over the input data.
