Unconscious biases (the thoughts and beliefs that are so deep ingrained on our brain, that we don’t realise they exist) affect our decision making every day which, in turn, affects teamwork and the development of solutions (8).
UNBIAS.ME is an AI service that allows Hal (the Jovoto AI Steward System) or any other AI facilitator to fact-check a team’s decisions against their unconscious biases. This allows for a more diverse recruiting as well as committing to a bias-free design process, and, in consequence, to a better product.
With the help of UNBIAS.ME, Hal is prepared to make a personal assessment of each individual (if given the permission) that analyzes all these variables by having a one to one test to identify personal biases based on variables such as previous experiences, cultural background and gender. It does this by noticing the physical symptoms of biases in the team member's behaviors such as language, eye contact, blinking and smiles amongst others (6). It also gathers data with the help of algorithms that identify biased information and points of view (7).
