Machine Learning can determine trends long before they are known to the general public. The U.S. real estate market is a great example of machine learning in action. On one hand, ML has created efficiencies that benefits many people. On the other hand, what are the long term implications of trend forecasting on individual consumer buying power?

@tuliani @hifce I’m curious what you think about this.

I think ML can certainly help create a more equitable future but the usage of ML is in human hands so it’s not always straightforward. As far as Google goes, there are strong AI principles used to evaluate each use case. I know the White House had established some guiding AI guidelines as well; not sure if they are widely adopted yet.

@Andrada.Morar do you know of an example of an AI principle that specifically keeps individuals in mind?
