Innovations in the cloud and data distortions in machine learning

A technological bias is a possibility that is increasingly emerging in business. The artificial intelligence itself may not be biased, but the data fed to it might be.

Therefore, it is important that companies are aware of how these technologies work so that they do not inadvertently perpetuate these biases.

“One of the things we’re trying to address, even in the [diversity, equity and inclusion] space makes sure our job descriptions don’t introduce bias so people immediately eliminate themselves,” said Patricia Jordan (pictured), vice president of enabling processes and technologies at Optum Inc., a healthcare services and innovation company.

Jordan spoke with theCUBE Industry Analyst Lisa Martin for the Special Program Series: Women of the Cloud during an exclusive broadcast on theCUBE, SiliconANGLE Media’s live streaming studio. They discussed tips for women to successfully apply for typical non-diversity jobs and managing data in the cloud. (*Disclosure below.)

What to do with all this data?

With the further development of the cloud, there is more and more data that then has to be managed and processed. Many companies struggle to keep up with all the data they’re ingesting. You also need to keep track of how B. Make sure they don’t store data across multiple clouds when it’s not needed.

“We know the applications that we can build. We know the analytics we can create, but if we don’t have the right data, we limit ourselves,” Jordan said.

Because data is such a rich resource, it proliferates in most areas of business, and companies must innovate and move forward to meet the ever-changing needs of their consumers. Jordan’s position at Optum means she is at the forefront of developing new technologies in the cloud.

“I’m really excited for what’s to come because there are so many ways to improve the products we build,” she explained.
