Made by Humans

The AI Condition

Ellen Broad
An Australian data expert challenges the idea of AI being better than humans
Who is designing AI? A select, narrow group. How is their world view shaping our future?

Artificial intelligence can be all too human: quick to judge, capable of error, vulnerable to bias. It's made by humans, after all. Humans make decisions about the laws and standards, the tools, the ethics in this new world. Who benefits. Who gets hurt.

Made by Humans explores our role and responsibilities in automation. Roaming from Australia to the UK and the US, elite data expert Ellen Broad talks to world leaders in AI about what we need to do next. It is a personal, thought-provoking examination of humans as data and humans as the designers of systems that are meant to help us.

Big questions. Hard conversations. A timely and important read.”
Professor Genevieve Bell, Engineering & Computer Science

Broad exposes the folly of the human vs machine dichotomy – the systems we create reflect our faults as well as our strengths. Understanding AI, she argues, is really about understanding human thought and behaviour.”
Antony Funnell, ABC Future Tense

Arguing for a deeply humane approach to technology, Made by Humans is a powerful and engaging read for anyone with an interest in artificial intelligence.”
Mustafa Suleyman, Co-founder and Head of Applied AI, DeepMind
