Should AI to be programmed around an aspirational image of the world we want or a realistic version of the world today? It’s a fine line but ultimately, we need to build trust with AI and the people creating it to create unbiased technology, @mobbie.

Gen Z want to be entertained in the social space. But in the age of ad-free video streaming, brand interruptions are not well tolerated. It’s imperative that brands create content that cuts through the noise and that Gen Z will want to watch and share.

Surveys are important, but only if used in the right way. They’re an opportunity to gather invaluable insight into where the gaps are and what the priorities should be, not an opportunity to justify your own results by those of others, @mobbie.

Bias creeps in when your data sets aren’t inclusive enough and AI then learns from our own prejudices. Inclusion has to be the aim for the future of AI, but there’s a potential paradox in building diversity while being tolerant of all view points, @mobbie.
