The partners of METIS warmly invite you to the second annual METIS Lecture:
COMPUTER SAYS NO: HOW DISCRIMINATION CAN CREEP INTO AI with Prof. Dr. Katharina Zweig,
Professor at TU Kaiserslautern and leader of the Algorithm Accountability Lab.
In recent years, "the" computer "said no" to people in many different situations: no to a credit application, no to a job application, or no to an application for a new job training for an unemployed person. But how did "the computer" decide these problems? And did it decide fairly? What does it actually mean to make a fair decision?
In this talk, Prof. Dr. Katharina Zweig will give an insight into how machine learning works and why the question of what is fair and what is not is still decided by humans. With her talk, Professor Zweig will lay a foundation for computer scientists, equal opportunities professionals, and anyone with an interest in gender equality to work together to fight discrimination. For those already working with AI, she will explain which questions to ask and how to interpret decisions made by AI, in order to make sure that only fair systems are used and are used well.
