AI Fairness Cluster Inaugural Conference & Workshop on AI Bias

AI Fairness Cluster Inaugural Conference

Tuesday, 19th March 2024, 09:00 – 18:00

Science Park Congress Center Venue, Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

AI technologies reshape industries, promising benefits but also introducing risks like discriminatory biases. The AI Fairness Cluster, comprising four HE projects (AEQUITAS, BIAS, FINDHR, MAMMOth), forms a network with 50+ institutions across Europe. Join our inaugural conference focusing on the technical, legal, and social aspects of discrimination risks, featuring keynote speakers, panellists, and presentations from cluster members and diverse European researchers.

AIMMES 2023 – Workshop on AI Bias: Measurements, Mitigation, Explanation Strategies

Wednesday, 20th March 2024, 09:00 – 18:00

Science Park Congress Center Venue, Amsterdam (The Netherlands)

The AI Fairness Cluster is hosting a technical workshop, AIMMES’24, on AI Biases: Measurements, Mitigation, Explanation Strategies. This workshop aims to foster a technical dialogue and enhance understanding of challenges and opportunities at the intersection of AI, fairness, and bias in our evolving technological landscape.

Through a Call for Papers, the workshop invites submissions from established scientists and graduate students in three main areas:

  • Explaining Bias: new approaches for comprehending, visualising, and communicating bias in datasets and AI systems, domain-specific strategies and use cases for explaining bias, and exploration of Explainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) tools and software.
  • Detecting Bias: novel definitions of AI bias and fairness, the impact of human factors, the role of social sciences, law, and humanities, inclusion of vulnerable communities in bias definition, and methods for studying bias in multi-attribute settings.
  • Mitigating Bias: methods for assessing trade-offs between fairness and accuracy, employing synthetic data for bias mitigation, addressing fairness in ranking and recommendation systems, and implementing application-specific mitigation strategies for areas like hiring, credit scoring, and face recognition.

Selected works will be chosen by a scientific program committee. Know everything about the AIMMES 2024 workshop and the call for papers HERE.

Co-located with the AI Fairness Cluster Inaugural Conference, the workshop encourages interaction through lightning talks and poster presentations, fostering new connections between researchers on these topics. The agenda will be available very soon.
