Machine Learning Bias



We have been constantly told this statement “Computers don’t lie”. Yes in fact Computers don’t lie, but neither does it speak the truth. A computer does what its Master programs it to do. Similarly, A model wouldn’t lie unless the Machine Learning Engineer doesn’t want it to lie. ML Bias has become a global topic with AI getting into social life of a lot of us but the awareness among the tech community is still nascent that not all of us get it. This is an attempt to increase the awareness of what's ML Bias and how it's impacting!
