Talk on Unconscious Bias:"Always love listening to the wonderful Ingrid Marsh"— Robert McCargow, PWC, Artificial Intelligence Programme Leader and the 38th most influential person in the world in AI.
Talk on Unconscious Bias:"Hello. Just wanted to say thank you for the talk on Monday. It has certainly got us thinking about the unconscious bias that might exist in the work we do. We spend a lot of time trying to avoid personal bias, that's important for great design but I've never really considered there might be a gender, race, social bias lurking within the design patterns we choose. First thing I checked, the order in which we allow our users to select the gender of their patients in our product... You won't be surprised to learn that we implemented 'Male' before 'Female'. For no good reason at all. Surely our default sorting should have been alphabetical but there you go... We often have to consciously make tough decisions and compromises and we spent a while discussing the appropriate way to input gender, considering the importance of how individuals might want to be identified in a clinical context and a raft of standards and political issues but we never once thought to consider the order in which we display the choices for our users. It's not like we don't have a mix of genders on our team but none of us spotted it. Anyway, it's helpful to be reminded where our blind spots might be. Thanks again.-- Elliot Engers - Co Founder and CEO Infinity Health
