An Assure AI Bot (AAAI bot)
Artificial Intelligence (AI) bots receive much attention and usage in industry manufacturing and even store cashier applications. Our research is to train AI bots to be software engineering assistants, specifically to detect biases and errors inside AI software applications. An example application is an AI machine learning system that sorts and classifies people according to various attributes, such as the algorithms involved in criminal sentencing, hiring, and admission practices. Biases, unfair decisions, and flaws in terms of the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), in such systems could have severe consequences. As a Hispanic-Serving Institution, we are concerned about underrepresented groups and devoted an extended amount of our time to implementing 'An Assure AI' (AAAI) Bot to detect biases and errors in AI applications. Our state-of-the-art AI Bot was developed based on our previous accumulated research in AI and Deep Learning (DL). The key differentiator is that we are taking a unique approach: instead of cleaning the input data, filtering it out and minimizing its biases, we trained our deep Neural Networks (NN) to detect and mitigate biases of existing AI models. The backend of our bot uses the Detection Transformer (DETR) framework, developed by Facebook, to monitor and detect the deep learning model's internal biases.
