This is an introductory-level microlearning course aimed at explaining what responsible AI is, why it’s important, and how Google implements responsible AI in their products. It also introduces Google’s 7 AI principles.
You’ll learn Skills
- Ethical Frameworks: You will learn about various ethical frameworks and principles relevant to AI, such as fairness, transparency, accountability, privacy, and bias. Understanding these principles is crucial for making ethical decisions when developing or deploying AI systems.
- Bias and Fairness: You will learn how to identify and mitigate biases in AI algorithms and data sets. This includes techniques for measuring and addressing bias in AI models to ensure fairness and equity.
- Explainability and Interpretability: You will explore methods and tools for making AI models more transparent and interpretable. This is important for understanding why AI systems make certain decisions, especially in critical applications like healthcare and finance.
- Privacy and Data Protection: You will gain knowledge about privacy regulations (e.g., GDPR, CCPA) and techniques for safeguarding sensitive data in AI applications. This includes methods for data anonymization and differential privacy.
- Algorithmic Accountability: You will learn about the legal and ethical responsibilities of organizations and individuals involved in AI development. This includes understanding potential liabilities and risks associated with AI systems.
- AI Governance and Regulation: You will gain insights into the regulatory landscape surrounding AI and ML technologies. This includes understanding government policies and industry standards related to responsible AI.
- Stakeholder Engagement: Responsible AI often involves collaboration with various stakeholders, including legal experts, policymakers, ethicists, and community representatives. You will learn how to engage and communicate effectively with these stakeholders.
- Case Studies: Many courses include real-world case studies and examples of responsible AI practices and failures. Analyzing these cases helps students understand the practical challenges and solutions in the field.
- Responsible AI Toolkits: Some courses may introduce you to toolkits and libraries specifically designed for implementing responsible AI practices, such as fairness assessment tools and explainability frameworks.
- Project Work: Many Responsible AI courses include hands-on projects or assignments where you can apply the principles and techniques you’ve learned to real-world AI applications.
