Bias creeps into AI models as they are trained. Hence, experts warn that data sets and model training techniques must to be cleansed of bias at each step in the process. Among the tools promoted to eliminate bias are holistic data sets, so-called because they incorporate historical, out-of-domain and previously unused data. Another approach involves what one vendor bills ... Full article
