Talks at this conferenceAdd a talk
The University of Rochester Department of Philosophy and the Goergen Institute of Data Science invite participants to attend an nterdisciplinary workshop, entitled Algorithmic Ethics: Perspectives from Philosophy and Computer Science, to be held at the University of Rochester, on May 1, 2020. The workshop is intended to bring philosophical discussions of justice, fairness and explainability into conversation with the technical computer science literature.
The workshop will be convened on Friday May 1 from 9am until 5pm. Each session will involve an inter-disciplinary pairing: a philosopher and a computer scientist giving talks on their research into data ethics back to back. Speaker topics include:
- treatment and impact discrimination in algorithms,
- the role of algorithms in distributive justice,
- dealing with value disagreement in algorithmic systems,
- explainability and justification by algorithmic systems,
- measuring bias in unjust or non-ideal contexts.
Lunch and refreshments will be provided to those who register in advance. RSVP in advance is essential to ensure we can organsie catering effectively. Any questions should be directed to Jon Herington (Jonathan.Herington@rochester.edu).
