Technology and Social Justice Series: Researchers and their Research



Technical innovations, particularly in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI) and social media, are known to introduce biases into the applications that replicate and amplify the prejudices and biases that are already present in our society.

Our panel will discuss how developers and researchers can create systems that remove bias from their AI solutions and can add safeguards to social media applications during this virtual event. Our panelists will include: 

  • Alexandra M. Franco, Visiting Assistant Professor of Law at Chicago-Kent College of Law
  • Kai Shu, Gladwin Development Chair Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at Illinois Tech
  • George K. Thiruvathukal, Professor of Computer Science and Director of CS Department Computing at Loyola University Chicago; Visiting Faculty at Argonne National Laboratory
  • Elena Zheleva, Assistant Professor in Computer Science at the University of Illinois at Chicago

You can watched the recorded program on YouTube.
