Workshop: Data Centric AI

On Biased Systems and Data


This work intends to provide an argument in favor of biased data and biased systems. It is argued through examples and situations that the use of bias can be beneficial to an ethical, lawful, and desirable result. Not only that but an argument is made that the search to eliminate bias at all costs can be counterproductive as well. We start by understanding bias in our data and how it can be used for good, followed by bias in our systems and how it can positively impact our lives. Possible problems and abuses when adopting this mindset are also discussed at the end.
