There are many aspects of Artificial Intelligence (AI) software that are like traditional software development, but there are some aspects that are unique to AI. This session will discuss some of the failure modes of AI that might not be familiar to someone with a more traditional background, including topics such as data quality, bias, risks of overfitting or underfitting, levels of autonomy and the potential for "overtrust" by the users.

Topics covered include:
  • What software developers using AI projects need to know
  • Understanding the difference between traditional and AI software development regarding potential risks
  • Hear real-world examples that show how weird AI can be when it fails
