What we're about

This group is operated by the University of Rhode Island (1/22/2021).

Join our vibrant and interdisciplinary monthly discussion on diverse topics regarding artificial intelligence from coding to robotics, IoT to ethics! We welcome everyone who is interested in the topic of AI from computer science, philosophy, information technology, social sciences whether you are a student, an educator, or a professional. The URI AI Lab is located at the University of Rhode Island Carothers Library Building (https://web.uri.edu/library/contact/) - 1st floor.

Exploring Evidence: Ethics and AI - Online Workshop Series

Needs a location

Workshop registration is required and space is limited. For more information or to register go to: https://web.uri.edu/ai/workshops

Misguided Evidence | Bias and Fairness
Wednesday, Nov. 3rd 6 - 7:30pm
How and why algorithmic systems may lead to unfair outcomes, discrimination, and injustice.

Inconclusive Evidence | Problematic Correlations
Wednesday, Nov. 17th 6 - 7:30pm
The problematic conclusions based on large data sets that lead to correlations without enough evidence for causation.

Physical Evidence | Human Labor
Wednesday, Dec. 1st 6 - 7:30pm
Human labor committed to the production of artificial intelligence.

Powerful AI systems and machine learning algorithms are increasingly influential in countless aspects of modern society, replacing humans in making many of the important decisions that shape our everyday lives. Although these technologies have the potential to improve our lives, citizens must be aware of and address the ethical issues that arise from this transformation.

Join the URI AI Lab and Dr. Rebecca Millsop (PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) as we explore the interaction of AI, society, and ethics by focusing on how the massive amounts of data collected by these systems can be used in problematic ways, increase discrimination, broaden inequity, and engender the violation of human rights.
