THE FUTURE OF DIGITAL FAIRNESS: AN ONLINE SYMPOSIUM BY THE ICDS @PENNSTATE (OCTOBER 6-7, 2021)

On October 6 and 7, 2021, the Institute for Computational and Data Sciences (ICDS) of the Pennsylvania State University will hold an online symposium on the Future of Digital Fairness.

Digital fairness is a crucial consideration for any scientist who relies on computation. Who owns artificial intelligence models and who owns the data in those models? What biases are unintentionally embedded in the models? How transparent are the data manipulation processes? How reproducible are the results? The answer to these questions could have a myriad of impacts on both the science being conducted and the communities that could potentially benefit from these investigations.

The EMbeDS community is invited to join the ICDS community and researchers from around the U.S. virtually October 6 and 7 to discuss data, equity, reproducibility, and other topics related to fairness.

The event will include keynotes on interpretability and replication of genomic studies and on equity in the data sciences, poster sessions and panel discussions on

  • Ethical Challenges and Considerations in the Application of Machine Learning Methods to Clinical Medicine
  • Law, Policy, and Data
  • Energy, Justice, and Big Data
  • Industry Perspectives on the Future of Digital Fairness

There is no fee to join the online symposium, but attendees must register here.
