Deborah Raji on the Challenges of Audits, Accountability & Algorithmic Justice

January 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm EST

“The Challenges of Audits, Accountability & Algorithmic Justice”
Abstract: 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, I hope to shed some light on the nature of the problems we face with algorithmic deployments, and the challenges of ensuring accountability and algorithmic justice.
Deborah is a Mozilla fellow, interested in topics of algorithmic auditing and evaluation. She has worked closely with the Algorithmic Justice League initiative on several award-winning projects to highlight cases of bias in computer vision. She has also worked with Google’s Ethical AI team and been a research fellow at the Partnership on AI and AI Now Institute at New York University working on various projects to operationalize ethical considerations in ML engineering practice.
