In Episode 3 - How Do You Decide? Amit and his guests recognise that while Big Data and AI can achieve amazing things, there are cons as well as pros. For example, how do systems that rely on masses of data ensure that they are gathering that data from as diverse a population as possible? And, if that population is very small, such as the number of people with a rare inherited eye condition, how do we know whether the Artificial Intelligence that relies on that data isn’t biased? And how, when the consequences are not certain, do we decide whether to allow our health data to be shared or to have a COVID vaccine?
Amit and Kika’s final guests were: the Big Internet Math-Off’s “world’s most interesting mathematician” (2 years running, no less) and Managing Director of Bays Consulting, Sophie Carr and the returningly - entertaining, Timandra Harkness
The series was produced by Jo Cammack and John Offord and first broadcast in June 2021
