The AEQUITAS project will be present at the 26th European Conference on Artificial Intelligence (ECAI) organized between the 30th of September and the 4th of October in Krakow, Poland!
As one of this year’s accepted workshops, the AEQUITAS workshop on Fairness and Bias in AI will be a forum for the exchange of ideas and the presentation of project results, as well as preliminary work in all areas related to fairness and bias in AI.
AI-based decision support systems are being increasingly deployed in industry, policymaking, and in the public and private sectors, guiding decisions in critical societal areas such as human resources, university admissions, loans, diagnoses, and crime prediction. However, in order to address inequalities and discrimination, these systems should help mitigate these phenomena, rather than amplifying them. Building trust in AI requires the confidence of domain experts, as well as stakeholders, and despite recent progress, there is still need for a comprehensive understanding of interpreting bias and discrimination in AI, along with further discussions to identify feasible and ethically justified socio-technical approaches to combat them.
As such, the AEQUITAS workshop will be covering a wide range of topics related to bias and fairness-by-design, including measures and metrics, counterfactual reasoning, metric learning, impossibility results, multi-objective strategies, federated learning, resource allocation, personalised interventions, debiasing strategies, human-in-the-loop approaches, auditing methods and tools, benchmarks and case studies, explainability, traceability, visual analytics, Human-Computer Interfaces (HCI), and software engineering approaches.
Additionally, best practices will be presented, along with legal, social and critical perspectives, which are crucial to the creation of the AEQUITAS tools and methodologies that will help developers detect bias and unfairness in AI.
