Accenture Goes to Ethicsville

Accenture has entered the bias-beating ring, they’ll be formally announcing their fairness tool this week.

I’m glad to see a growing surge of focus on algorithmic bias and how to avoid it. Are any of these tools silver bullets? No. But acknowledging the problem and seeking to solve even small portions of it is a wonderful first step. 🗺

It’s nice to see a tech issue not get swept under the rug or blamed on the tech itself. “I’m just an engineer” isn’t gonna fly.
