S02E11 (#321).  How do we know when to trust a system? Carol Smith leads the Trust Lab team at Carnagie Mellon Universty, where they conduct research into making trustworthy, human centered, and responsible AI systems. Our conversation highlights the importance of guardrails and ethical considerations in AI development, as well as to ask the right questions and to be critical of the work we are doing – in order to make the best systems we can for the people who are using them or who will be affected by them.

“If the system is providing the right kind of evidence of how it’s making decisions, how it’s making recommendations, if it is a situation where the people understand the capabilities of that system in that particular context, and also know what the edges are – it can’t handle this type of situation, or it will perform poorly in this type of situation – then they can begin to build what is called calibrated trust. “

– Carol Smith
