Quotes attributable to Associate Professor Niusha Shafiabady:

"AI is becoming part of our everyday lives and despite what many people think, this technology is not perfect. It has many flaws and if we’re to integrate it into our lives, we must know about these flaws and what kinds of solutions we need to fix it.

“Unexpected mistakes: When AI is applied to real-world problems, it is never 100 per cent accurate. Even though we can test it vigorously, there might be cases that it makes an unexpected decision.

“Bias: AI can make troubling and biased decisions because it’s been trained with unbalanced data.

“Not up to date: If Artificial Intelligence systems are not regularly updated, it can make mistakes and not optimal decisions.

“Training data issues: If AI is not trained with quality data vetted by experts in this field, it can make inaccurate decisions.

“We should know about these issues and broaden our knowledge of Artificial Intelligence systems to make better decisions on how to best apply AI as a tool to assist us in our decision-making processes.

“If we do not understand AI, its abilities, its issues and how to fix or improve them, there could be significant consequences we can’t afford to face in a world ever-increasingly dominated by technology.”
