We are pleased to announce the Computers and Society Research Conference. The conference is an informal get-together for colleagues and friends, and an opportunity for our students to show off their research. The conference will take place 14.00-17.00 on 20th May 2022, on the Dotslash Campus, Europalaan 100, Utrecht.
We have invited Christos Aridas, head of Research and Development at Code 4 Thought to give a short keynote on fair AI:
Beyond accuracy: On enhancing the trust in AI systems
These days ai is being used everywhere. from our phones to our cars. The need for ensuring trust in AI models is more essential than ever. Model’s evaluation should be extended beyond accuracy to other dimensions, such as transparency, fairness, adversarial robustness, and distributional shift, to name a few. In this talk we will elaborate on these dimensions via some real-life case studies and practical examples.
Code 4 Thought is one of Greece’s scale-ups to watch according to EU-startups and develops tools such as Pythia that help companies to test their AI for fairness.
We have invited several students to present their ongoing research in a short pitch. The topics that will be presented include:
- Effective, Interactive & Adaptive learning systems in mathematics, Naseya Weinchard (Computer Science masters student, VU)
- Assessing fairness of AI recruitment systems, Maaike Hooghiemstra (Computer Science masters student, VU)
- Project management and project failure for crowdfunded computer game projects, Jasser Bakridi (Computer Science masters student, VU)
