Courts, schools and other public agencies that make decisions using artificial intelligence should refrain from using “black box” algorithms that aren’t subject to outside scrutiny, a group of prominent AI researchers says.

1) Did the biases mentioned in the article come from the AI itself, or the programmers of the AI?

2) Could you set up a cyber-audit company to provide services to audit AIs for bias?
