Recovering from the Tech Backlash

In a world where algorithms decide who goes to prison, who gets shortlisted for a job, and which potential life partners are presented in dating apps, Tonima Afroze is an advocate for fair algorithms. Having worked with credit risk assessments and fraud detection at Klarna, she went on to do her Master’s dissertation on fairness bias in machine learning at the University of Oxford. She wants to encourage everyone to be critical towards algorithms and make creators of tech aware of how to avoid biases in their products.
