Ethical Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Algorithms - Series of lectures

Over recent years there has been increasing interest in issues such as fairness, accountability, transparency, and ethics in Informatics.  In response, the School of Informatics is hosting a monthly lecture series on "Ethical Artificial Intelligence, Data Science and Algorithms" from January - June 2020.  The lecture series is co-funded by the School of Informatics, the UKRI CDT in Natural Language Processing, the UKRI CDT in Biomedical Artificial Intelligence and the EPSRC CDT in Data Science.  It has been organized by Kousha Etessami, Chris Williams and Michael Rovatsos, based on suggestions solicited from the School.
