An ethicist on why fixing algorithms may not be the best response to algorithmic bias.
Beware of the blind use of artificial intelligence: used as a "magic wand", for example in an autonomous car, it presents risks.
What do the Carlos Ghosn scandal, the rising power of algorithms and the "gilets jaunes" have in common? The need to extend the spatial and temporal definitions of responsibility.
It's easier to make the list than you might think.
