This workshop aims to bring together researchers around the topics of bias and accountability in algorithmically aided systems. Specifically we will discuss examples of systems where algorithms can be harmful, how users’ perception and interactions with these services affects outcomes, and finally research ideas and opportunities for designing accountable systems.
The event is jointly organized by the Privacy and Sustainable Computing Lab of WU and the Complexity Science Hub, and will take place in the Hub. The event features short presentations about ongoing research projects while leaving space for open discussions and brain-storming. Discussion will be structured around relevant practical examples, such as algorithmic decision making in job search, route planning services, and the role of algorithms in food delivery services.
