Three innovative ways to use iGenApps:

1.) Presentations: This was the first time I learned about iGenApps was during a large presentation. The presenter asked us, if we had a smartphone or tablet, to download the application he designed. On the application was all of his presentation materials. It had links to PDF files, power point presentations, videos and his contact information. In awe by this innovative presentation format, I asked how he did it, and he told me, iGenApps. Not only was this an organized method of presenting, but it kept the audience interested.

2.) Teaching: I use iGenApps for teaching. I create my applications to surround the subject I am teaching, I upload my lessons (power point presentations), homework assignments (PDF files), support videos and my contact information, so students can e-mail me right from the app. I have also had my students build their own app as a project, and then I would have the class test their app. There possibilities are endless in the field of education.

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Can Technology have Biases Like Humans?

Technology has taken a vantage leap in providing solutions for man. Before now, technology used to appear complex and would require a great deal of expertise to handle solutions available. Today, we have technology applicable in the simplest human activities as smart products with intelligent algorithms powering them as they make error-free judgments and provide intelligent and analytic solutions.

Does technology have all the answers?

This article from Credit Suisse, tells us that technology does not have all the answers because it has been found to exhibit “similar biases,” as humans. No one can discredit the impact of technology, but it is not totally free of human input and this is the reason we experience these biases in many areas we have technology holding foot.

Creating technological solutions transparently

This article suggests that the process of creating technological solutions be made transparent and subject to contribution from many people who would end up as users of the product – male, female, young, old, learned, unlearned and all other preferences as we have them. It also underscores the importance of having women on product development teams. This approach is not sure to eliminate all forms of bias, but it is a good way to start in order to appraise the full benefits of technology.

Technology as the connecting tool

Technology so far has been a major connecting tool amongst us humans. It is used and appreciated by all regardless of race, language and sex. In order to keep it less subjective to these arguments about human biases. I believe we should gather opinions on products and solutions before making them available to the public. This could be done by gathering input from intended target users and receiving feedback across the stages of production.

“Recognizing the problem is a start…success will depend on inclusive technologies that meet this vast untapped market.” This cannot be more apt especially at a time when we look up to technology for solutions. We should not muzzle our progress with technology by battling algorithm bias. The first way to avoid this battle is by reading this article here.
