Description

Algorithms increasingly govern our social world, transforming data into scores or rankings that decide who gets credit, jobs, dates, policing, and much more. Law and policy experts publish new articles daily on how the algorithms behind artificial intelligence (AI) shape our lives, and a growing community of researchers has developed a field known as “Fairness, Accuracy, and Transparency in Machine Learning.” But what does fairness mean in this context? And why are policy experts increasingly worried about unfair judgments and discrimination by AI? This talk will center on a series of opportunities and challenges posed by algorithmic social order, and will present the broad outlines of leading American, Chinese and European policy initiatives in the area.
