  • What it’s like to work in the field of artificial intelligence? (spoiler: it’s really fun!)
  • How the idea of fair synthetic data came up?
  • How to create machine learning models that are private and fair by design?
  • Why is it so challenging to remove bias from an algorithm?
  • What are proxy variables, and why are they dangerous?
  • What is the definition of fairness, and why do we need one in the first place?
  • How should companies start implementing fairness and ethical approaches into their AI development?
  • Why it’s impossible to fix bias without fair synthetic data and algorithmic fairness?
