Sorry, Dave, I can't code that: AI's prejudice problem

Re: Transparency...

It didn't decide to do anything. The input photo is all the data collected about you. The output photo might be a single pixel describing your credit rating. And the filter is the entirety of the program.

One of us isn't getting this, and I don't think it's me!

To derive a description of my credit rating from all the data about me, the program/filter/macro/neural net/AI must have followed a finite number of steps of sequence, selection and iteration.

All I'm asking is why people think that that cannot be logged and output - ie why the AI cannot explain how it arrived at an outcome.
