MEET Fei-Fei Li

WHY?

As a Stanford professor of computer science, Fei-Fei Li is responsible for creating ImageNet, a machine learning program that has exposed a prejudicial issue in perpetuating racial stereotypes and gender biases in law enforcement. She is actively working towards fixing and improving the algorithms these facial recognition programs use so she can help eliminate the consequences of prejudicial assumptions imbedded in the AI. Fei-Fei Li firmly believes that AI does not have any independent values. There are only human values, and she wants to fix those values.
