The MIT Sloan Experts Series

This installment of the MIT Sloan Experts Series features Renée Richardson Gosline, Senior Lecturer at the MIT Sloan School of Management and a Principal Research Scientist at MIT's Initiative on The Digital Economy. She discusses her research, which looks at the consequences of how and when people trust bots and algorithms to help them make decisions, and what it means for society at large.

Cathy O’Neil, the renowned data scientist and author of the book, Weapons of Math Destruction, also appears on the program. She talks about how AI-infused technologies are increasingly used in ways that reinforce racial exclusion and how the COVID-19 pandemic has worsened inequalities.

Kathy Baxter, Principal Architect of The Ethical AI Practice at Salesforce, weighs in on what companies are doing to meet these challenges. In particular, she discusses the creation of model cards, which are designed to provide critical information about how Salesforce’s machine learning and AI models work—including inputs, outputs, the conditions under which models work best, and ethical considerations in their use.
