Robert Elliott Smith: “Rage Inside the Machine” | Talks at Google

Dr. Robert Elliott Smith works part time as a Senior Research Fellow of Computer Science at University College London, and as Chief Technology Office for BOXARR. He is a founding member of The UCL Centre for The Study of Decision-Making Uncertainty and also interested in complex-systems-based artificial intelligence.

In this talk, he discusses his new book “Rage Inside the Machine: The Prejudice of Algorithms, and How to Stop the Internet Making Bigots of Us All”, touching on his personal story and the history of machine learning methods. Having worked in artificial intelligence for over 30 years, he asks: what if the questionable morals of machines are not just the result of programmer or data prejudice, but there’s something more fundamental and explicitly mechanical at play, something inherent in the technology itself?
