Three Forces Shaping AI Inequality

Algorithmic bias: 

– AI algorithms can be biased, leading to unfair outcomes for certain groups of people.

Supply-side forces 

– AI is automating and augmenting jobs, which could disproportionately displace workers from marginalized groups.

Demand-side forces: 

People may value AI-augmented goods and services less, which could hurt businesses that rely on AI. 

These forces can intersect and perpetuate inequality 

For example, AI-augmented services may be perceived as less valuable 

– especially when provided by professionals from marginalized groups.

Efforts are underway to address algorithmic bias and the effects of automation 

– but more needs to be done to understand and mitigate the demand-side forces of AI inequality.
