What we're about

ODSC brings together the open source and data science communities with the goal of helping its members learn, connect and grow.

The focus of this Meetup group is to allow ODSC to work with Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations to present informative lectures, workshops, code sprints and networking events to help grow the use of open source languages and tools within the data science and data-centric community. As such, our specific goals are:

1. Build a collaborative group to work with other Meetup groups, non-profits, and other organizations.

2. Promote the use of open source languages and tools amongst data scientists and others.

3. Host educational workshops.

4. Spread awareness of new open source languages and tools that can be used in data science.

5. Contribute back to the open source community.

Who is this meetup for?

• Data engineers, analysts, scientists, and other practitioners

• R, Python and other software engineers who work with data or want to learn

• Data visualization developers and designers

• Non-technical team leads, executives, and other decision makers from data centric startups and large companies looking to utilize open source tools

Webinar: "Responsible AI – State of the Art and Future Directions"

To access this webinar, please register here: https://aiplus.odsc.com/courses/responsible-ai-state-of-the-art-and-future-direction Topic: Responsible AI – State of the Art and Future Directions Speaker: Mehrnoosh Sameki, Senior Technical Program Manager at Microsoft https://www.linkedin.com/in/mehrnoosh-sameki-a2a02245/ Bio: Mehrnoosh Sameki is a senior technical program manager at Microsoft, responsible for leading the product efforts on machine learning interpretability and fairness within the Azure Machine Learning platform. She earned her PhD degree in computer science at Boston University. She also serves as an adjunct assistant professor at Boston University, offering courses in AI and responsible ML. Previously, she was a data scientist at Rue Gilt Groupe, incorporating data science and machine learning in the retail space to drive revenue and enhance customers’ personalized shopping experiences. Abstract: Responsible AI is an umbrella term for many themes associated with the intersection of ethics and AI.  One reasonable enumeration is Microsoft’s 6 Principles for AI development:  Four core principles of fairness, reliability/safety, privacy/security, and inclusiveness, underpinned by two foundational principles of transparency and accountability. For this presentation, we focus on Transparency (Interpretability), Fairness and Inclusiveness, and Privacy as major principles of responsible AI and cover best practices and state-of-the-art open-source toolkits and offerings that target researchers, data scientists, machine learning developers, and business stakeholders to be able to build trustable, more transparent AI systems. Attendees will leave the session with the basic understanding of responsible AI principles, best practices and open-source tools around responsible development and deployment of AI systems. They will be able to incorporate the introduced tools and products in their machine learning life cycle, running them on their previously-trained models to understand the factors that went into their model predictions, and verify their model fairness across protected attributes and mitigate the existing bias.
