Speaker | Big Tech, data ethics and bias in the age of algorithms
Dr Robert Elliott Smith PhD FRSA is the author of Rage Inside the Machine: The Prejudice of Algorithms, and How to Stop the Internet Making Bigots of Us All. He has worked in artificial intelligence for 30 years, helping create software systems that learn fighter jet manoeuvres, describe immune systems, reveal emotion in financial markets, and suggest how social networks propagate political polarisation.
Robert grew up in Alabama during desegregation bussing, and those life experiences inform his perspective on how algorithmic bias can affect society. He is the CTO of BOXARR Ltd. and a faculty member at University College London.
