Student instruction in English

Din lärare kommer att dela in er i grupper. Läs materialet, pdf:en och titta på videon som ni tilldelas. Ta gärna anteckningar under tiden utifrån diskussionsfrågorna.


Diskutera gemensamt svaren på frågorna nedan. Alla i gruppen antecknar svaren i varsitt individuellt dokument, som tas med till presentationen i slutet av lektionen.

1. Börja med att kort sammanfatta filmen, ta gärna med en eller flera key take-aways, dvs något viktigt ni tar med er från filmen. 

2. Diskutera i gruppen: varför är det viktigt att tänka på etik när det kommer till AI?

3. Skriv ner 1-2 möjligheter och 1-2 hot mot samhället och säkerhet som tekniken kan föra med sig. Välj något exempel som presenteras i filmerna eller kom på ett eget exempel.

4. Ser du några risker med om tekniken inte blir tillgänglig för alla?

5. Vem står bakom filmerna och pdf:en? Har de en positiv eller kritisk inställning till tekniken? Tycker ni att de ger en realistisk bild eller överdriver/underdriver de möjligheterna och riskerna? Varför i så fall, tror ni?

6. Anteckna något ni tycker är extra intressant/skrämmande/inspirerande, som ni vill lyfta i klassen


I slutet av lektionen kommer ni att presentera för resten av klassen vad filmen handlar om. Använd er gärna av er sammanfattning och lyft era key take-aways. Berätta kort om vad ni diskuterade i er grupp, vad var mest intressant?

AI Ethics

On trust and bias as a potential obstacle on your AI-journey.

Using Data and AI to predict scenarios and improve customer experiences can help differentiate you in the market. However, bias is an important element to consider to be able to trust your data and AI models. In this episode, we are joined by Therése Svensson, Data Science & AI Ethics Solution Specialist, IBM and Mikael Haglund, CTO, IBM Sweden. The two experts will address pitfalls and possibilities to enable you to take advantage of Data and AI – without repeating someone else’s mistakes.

In a world of Artificial Intelligence

In a world where companies like Netflix, Spotify, and Klarna set the standards for our expectations as customers, it is safe to say that artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning will grow stronger. AI solutions use to calculate the likelihood that you will appreciate certain songs, which scenes to include in movies to give them high ratings and pinpoint what a fraudulent transaction looks like to provide smoother payment solutions. IBM started exploring the area of AI many years ago, in the 90s developing Deep Blue, the first computer which won over a human in the board game chess, and in 2011 having developed Watson, the first computer system to win Jeopardy while competing against ruling Jeopardy champions

Ethical concerns

In later years the importance of working actively with the ethical aspects of AI has become more evident. IBM puts a lot of money and resources into generic research, in 28 years in a row, the company has filed for more patents than any other company in the US. Significant areas for IBM research are AI and Ethical AI (IBM, 2019). Ethical AI is an important research area as we have seen many examples of where AI systems are not automatically performing ethically. Unfortunately, there are many examples of AI systems acting discriminating. We have read about recruitment systems being favorable to men (Gibbs, 2015Dastin, 2018), healthcare systems that discriminating black people (Ledford, 2019), white offenders being more likely to get shorter sentences than other offenders (Thadaney Israni, 2017), and women being granted lower loans or credits than their male peers (Telford, 2019).


The year 2020 became essential for the discussion around the use of facial recognition. Both Russia (Reuters, ND) and China (Jakhar, 2020), were accused of using such systems unethically in their surveillance of people. In 2020, IBM announced the decision to stop develop general-purpose facial recognition systems to prevent the use of facial recognition systems for mass surveillance, racial profiling, or any other type of violation of basic human rights and freedom (BBC News, 2020).

So, how can research help prevent unethical AI?IBM works with five focus areas (IBM, ND). This is to consider ways to make AI systems’ reasoning transparent and understandable to humans (Explainability) to reduce and discover bias in data which lead to discrimination (Fairness) and to prevent security issues such as hacker attacks (Robustness). Furthermore, to make the shortcomings and the strengths of AI systems visible (Transparency) as well as to find ways to ensure your private data stays private even as it is being used by AI systems (Privacy). IBM believes in a future of AI given that morals and ethics lay the foundation for how these systems are developed and used further.
