Leila Janah (Samasource): Better Algorithms, Better Lives; Alleviating Poverty Through Training Data
Think that tech advances will always result in job automation and leaving behind those without opportunity? People may not realize that artificial intelligence is still powered by human intelligence- advances in AI can actually create jobs: think of training data. Producing quality training data is critical in ensuring the AI experience works, but expertly annotating hundreds of thousands of images necessary to create quality algorithms requires massive human effort. However, outsourcing this work through traditional channels misses a major opportunity– the chance to impact lives. Instead, let’s connect the 1.3 billion people living in extreme poverty around the world to cutting-edge innovation in the AR space. Let’s leverage the talent pool of global human intelligence to advance technology sustainably. Let’s ensure our automated cars and VR headsets don’t isolate but instead connect us more deeply to each other.
