What will happen in your session?

This session will be an interactive audience discussion.
We will start with a mini-experiment, presenting participants with a ‘limited resources’ scenario (e.g. allocation of game character type in an online multi-player game where each type can only be played by one player) and asking them which of five algorithms for assigning game characters to players is most fair. First, under black-box conditions where only algorithm decision information is known. Second when information about the decision criteria of each algorithm are given.
We will then proceed to discuss a number of case studies related with.

  • The role of recommender algorithms in hoaxes and fake news on the Web
  • Unintended algorithmic discrimination on the web – routes towards detection and prevention

What is the goal or outcome of your session?

This session is part of the public engagement work for the UnBias project (http://unbias.wp.horizon.ac.uk) aimed at developing design-, regulation- and education- recommendations to minimize unjustified and inappropriate bias in algorithmic services. It will build on our previous experience of running workshops with youths (12-17 years old), with our stakeholders group of industry, civil-society, regulators, academics and teachers, and at academic conferences.
The goal of the session is to gain insights into the knowledge, perceptions and concerns of people regarding algorithms that intermediate between internet users and online information. These will contribute to the development of our algorithm awareness, empowerment and empathy tool-kits, our submissions to parliamentary inquiries and our work on the IEEE P7003 Standard for Algorithm Bias Considerations.

If your session requires additional materials or electronic equipment, please outline your needs.

Overhead projector could be useful, but is not essential.

We can do something in 60minutes if necessary but 90 would be better. In the past we've run similar workshops easily covering 3-5 hours but 60-90minute will be OK get the dialogue started to hopefully continue on- and off-line after the event.

Hi @arkoene , my name is Kasia and I work on Mozilla’s Internet Health Report. At Mozfest we will be present with an “Internet Research Hub” #618 (last comment) - an easy-going, cozy space for discussions and networking both with us about Internet Health and among researchers themselves.

We also invite anyone who does work in an Internet research field to sign up and present their work at a couple of open display tables we will have in the hub. If you would like to present something in the Hub in addition to your official session, let me know! We will promote these sessions throughout the festival. You can sign up spontaneously with pen and paper on site or if you would like to save a spot beforehand, drop me an email at kasia@mozillafoundation.org with a short description of the session.

In any case, I would like to invite you to pass by the hub and say hi. We will start with an informal "Research and coffee grinder” get-together at the beginning of the festival where people can get to know each other. Space and exact schedule for the Hub are still being decided and I will update you once we know the details. Hope to see you there!
