The Challenges of Audits, Accountability & Algorithmic Justice
April 14th, 2021 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm PDT
As its popularity and proliferation increase, AI tools are slowly and surely making their way into our everyday lives. However, as its use becomes widespread, we continue to encounter failures that are becoming harder to explain – and hold decision makers accountable for. In this talk, rather than discussing the solutions to these harms, Deborah Raji will shed some light on the nature of the problems we face with algorithmic deployments, and the challenges of ensuring accountability and algorithmic justice.
COMM230X: Digital Civil Society Speaker Series: This series provides a forum for scholars and community-based innovators to present their work, learn from those working on related issues from different disciplinary perspectives, and spark or nurture cross-disciplinary engagement around the big questions that animate the digital civil society Lab. Topics covered this quarter notably include polarization and social media, algorithmic audits, digital rights advocacy in Africa, transnational social movements, philanthropy and racial justice, misinformation and social protest.
This event is open to all members of the Stanford community and requires pre-registration with a stanford.edu email.
