|Algorithmic Bias and Responsibility: Who, When, To Whom?|
|Virtual- REGISTRATION REQUIRED (SEE ABSTRACT) Zoom
May 26, 2021 - 01:00 pm
This talk will address three issues regarding algorithmic bias. First I will argue that we should consider bias in the entire algorithmic and data process. This raises the question of when bias arises, which is important for ascribing responsibility. Second, I will ask who should fix the bias: given that bias in AI is related to bias in society and that a democratic way of addressing the issue is preferable, it is not clear that developers and their companies should carry all responsibility for minimizing bias. Third, what we identify as bias is culturally and historically influenced. The current discourses on bias usually fail to be sufficiently sensitive to differences in a global context. This issue is related to the question 'to whom are we responsible?' and connects to my arguments about relational responsibility.
