The ‘Trusting AI’ project by IBM Research aims to improve the tech giant’s predictive technology tools like IBM Watson by ensuring fairness, inclusivity and accountability.
In addition to tools that are built for performance, IBM Research believes that future AI needs to be centered around trust and that trust can only be achieved with consistent evaluation and tweaking. Trusting AI is part of this plan and represents how IBM is working to ensure its technology is fair and inclusive while staying accountable when improvements can be made.
“As AI advances, and humans and AI systems increasingly work together, it is essential that we trust the output of these systems to inform our decisions. Alongside policy considerations and business efforts, science has a central role to play: developing and applying tools to wire AI systems for trust. IBM Research’s comprehensive strategy addresses multiple dimensions of trust to enable AI solutions that inspire confidence,” says the brand on its website.
