XKDD 2022
Description:

In the past decade, machine learning based decision systems have been widely used in a wide range of application domains, like credit score, insurance risk, and health monitoring, in which accuracy is of the utmost importance. Although the support of these systems has an immense potential to improve the decision in different fields, their use may present ethical and legal risks, such as codifying biases, jeopardizing transparency and privacy, and reducing accountability. Unfortunately, these risks arise in different applications.

Privacy in Statistical Databases

Start:

End:
2022/09/23 02:00 Europe/Rome
Location:

PSD 2022
Description:

Privacy in statistical databases is about finding tradeoffs to the tension between the increasing societal and economical demand for accurate information and the legal and ethical obligation to protect the privacy of individuals and enterprise which are the respondents providing the statistical data. In the case of statistical databases, the motivation for respondent privacy is one of survival: data collectors cannot expect to collect accurate information from individual or corporate respondents unless these feel the privacy of their responses is guaranteed.

Italian Workshop on Explainable Artificiale Intelligence XAI.it 2020
Description:

Artificial Intelligence systems are increasingly playing an increasingly important role in our daily lives. As their importance in our everyday lives grows, it is fundamental that the internal mechanisms that guide these algorithms are as clear as possible. It is not by chance that the recent General Data Protection Regu-lation (GDPR) emphasized the users' right to explanation when people face artificial intelligence-based technologies.

Bias and Fairness in AI
Description:

AI techniques based on big data and algorithmic processing are increasingly used to guide decisions in important societal spheres, including hiring decisions, university admissions, loan granting, and crime prediction. They are applied by search engines, Internet recommendation systems and social media bots, influencing our perceptions of political developments and even of scientific findings. However, there are growing concerns with regard to the epistemic and normative quality of AI evaluations and predictions.

Cos’è l’intelligenza, non solo artificiale
Description:

Il grande biologo e paleontologo Stephen Jay Gould in Intelligenza e pregiudizio (The Mismeasure of Man, 1981) criticò la pretesa di ridurre l’intelligenza a un’entità da misurare. Cosa significa misurare l’intelligenza? Quale idea si ha di intelligenza quando si pensa di misurarla? Siamo sicuri di essere noi i più intelligenti del pianeta? Che rapporto c’è tra intelligenza individuale e l’intelligenza collettiva, sia nella dimensione umana sia in quella delle macchine?
