Artificial intelligence needs to be trained on culturally diverse datasets to avoid bias

Retrieved on: 
Tuesday, February 13, 2024

The capabilities of LLMs have developed into quite a wide range, from writing fluent essays, through coding to creative writing.

Key Points: 
  • The capabilities of LLMs have developed into quite a wide range, from writing fluent essays, through coding to creative writing.
  • LLMs are trained by reading massive amounts of texts and learning to recognize and mimic patterns in the data.
  • Because the internet is still predominantly English — 59 per cent of all websites were in English as of January 2023 — LLMs are primarily trained on English text.

Model bias

  • By default, ChatGPT followed the North American standard of a 15 to 25 per cent tip, ignoring the Spanish norm not to tip.
  • It’s unclear if this capability emerged from training a newer version of the model on more data — after all, the web is full of tipping guides in English — or whether OpenAI patched this particular behaviour.
  • Again, ChatGPT likely assumed they were invited for a standard North American 6 p.m. dinner.
  • A similar phenomenon is encountered when asking DALL-E 3, an image generation model trained on pairs of images and their captions, to generate an image of a breakfast.
  • This model, which was trained on mainly images from Western countries, generated images of pancakes, bacon and eggs.

Impacts of bias

  • Just like cross-cultural human interactions can lead to miscommunications, users from diverse cultures that are interacting with conversational AI tools may feel misunderstood and experience them as less useful.
  • As more people rely on LLMs for editing writing, they are likely to unify how we write.

Decision-making and AI

  • AI is already in use as the backbone of various applications that make decisions affecting people’s lives, such as resume filtering, rental applications and social benefits applications.
  • Lack of cultural awareness may lead to AI perpetuating stereotypes and reinforcing societal inequalities.

LLMs for languages other than English

  • First, there is a huge population of English speakers outside of North America who are not represented by English LLMs.
  • Second, many users whose native language is not English still choose to use English LLMs.
  • Due to either a lack of availability of LLMs in their native languages, or superior quality of the English LLMs, users from diverse countries and backgrounds may prefer to use English LLMs.

Ways forward

  • Our research group at the University of British Columbia is working on enhancing LLMs with culturally diverse knowledge.
  • Together with graduate student Mehar Bhatia, we trained an AI model on a collection of facts about traditions and concepts in diverse cultures.
  • Our future research will go beyond teaching models about the existence of culturally diverse concepts to better understand how people interpret the world through the lens of their cultures.
  • With AI tools becoming increasingly ubiquitous in society, it is imperative that they go beyond the dominating western and North American perspectives.
