Just as leading diverse organizations require consciously engaging human beings and culture, such leadership also requires consciously selecting and evaluating which automated systems are employed in all aspects of decision-making. One cannot program away human prejudice by blindly relying on computer code. The purpose of this talk is to raise awareness of the numerous ways that computer algorithms, and the products and services which use them, are as prejudiced and biased as their human designers. In many respects, the products and services created through machine learning simply serve to help humans implement their biases more efficiently and much more massively.
