Responsible AI @ Twitter
In this talk, I will focus on Responsible AI in the social media space, and specifically at Twitter, sharing the kinds of problems that we tackle and explore. At Twitter, Responsible AI is a company-wide initiative and concern, called Responsible ML. Leading this work is our ML Ethics, Transparency and Accountability (META) team: a dedicated group of engineers, researchers, and data scientists collaborating across the company to assess downstream or current unintentional harms in the algorithms we use and to help Twitter prioritize which issues to tackle first. I will share where we are today and where we are headed.
