In this talk Dr. Silvana Badaloni will discuss how learning algorithms can lead to a strong reinforcement of existing social and gender bias. The problem arises mainly since little attention is paid to how data are collected, processed and organized. Transparency and explainability are two central keywords for developing a trustworthy AI.
Silvana is Associate Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the Department of Information Engineering, University of Padova, Italy and Studiosa Senior of Studium Patavinum. She is a Board Member of Elena Cornaro Center on Gender Studies at University of Padova.
