Session Abstract

In today’s world, and more than ever before, information, algorithms and systems have the potential to influence and shape our experiences and views. With increased access to digital media and the ubiquity of data-driven processes in all areas of life, awareness and understanding of areas such as algorithmic accountability, transparency, governance and bias are becoming increasingly important. Recent cases in the news and media have highlighted the wider societal effects of data and algorithms requiring we pay it more attention. This workshop will bring together researchers from different disciplines who are interested in analysing and tackling bias within their discipline, arising from the data, algorithms and methods they use. The theme of the workshop is bias in information, algorithms, and systems, which includes, but is not limited to, the following areas: bias in sources of data and information, categorisation and representation schemes, algorithms, bias in the broader context of information and social systems, considerations in evaluation, interactions between individuals, technologies and data/information, considerations for data governance and policy.

The workshop welcomes submissions of position papers, talks, posters, and research papers. Get on the workshop’s homepage: http://ir.shef.ac.uk/bias/.
