Dear Students, 

Happy Sunday. Hope you are all staying safe. I want to dedicate this week's newsletter to support the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

When I look around me I don't see enough black people at work, among my students or fellow speakers in conferences.  They are not given equal opportunities for positions we see around us. So here I am sharing some resources for you to do your part. And I need your help to get more Black students in my classed. I am happy to give 2 fully scholarship to Black professionals for the PathtoAV class on DriverlessWorldSchool.

1. Make AI unbiased to Black people

This is an easy one and an important one we in technology industry need to focus on urgently.
Facial recognition systems, AI systems that offer recommendation to judges and healthcare AI that recommends care are all biased against Black people and women.

a. Data Bias: AI is trained by data and data missing enough Black people becomes biased against them. If you build AI products, be sure to check for bias in the datasets to ensure equal representation of Black people and women. Women in AI Ethics work in this area of #AI Ethics and ResponsibleAI and can help.
b. Metric Bias: Data is labelled with key metrics that is set by you, the business people. Remember the responsibility you have in setting right metrics that reduces bias against Black people. Research has shown bias against Black people in recommendation for high risk care management in US medical system.

2. Hire or make job referrals for amazing designers (UX, Creative Directors, Graphic designers, Product designers, Design thinkers, web designers, writers and more) from BlacksWho.Design.


3. Fund Black owned businesses.Here's top 25 Black entrepreneurs.
Angel Investor and LP of BlackStage Capital Sahil Lavingia is calling for referrals to Black founder startups to invest. Email him at sahil at hey.com


See you online at our #weeklywed live to hear PathtoAV guest speakers.

Best Wishes,
Sudha
