First Bilbao Workshop on Algorithmic Fairness (FBWAF 2021)

Online, 21-23 June, 2021

Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence have advanced rapidly in recent decades, and their use is becoming increasingly widespread, with applications ranging from disease detection or object recognition to the automated evaluation of résumés. Along with this increase, there has also been growing concern about the ethical issues that may arise from the adoption of these technologies as well as the impact on humans and society of decisions made based on automatic or semi-automatic systems. It has led to a great push for the emergence of multidisciplinary approaches for assessing and removing the presence of bias in machine learning-based decision support systems. From 21st to 23rd June 2021, BCAM will host an online workshop on the topic of algorithmic fairness. This event aims to give an overview of the problem, from its origin to the current state-of-the-art, discussing future research opportunities. During these three days, invited speakers will present some of the latest methodological developments in this area as well as different applications in several domains.
