BCS and IET are pleased to announce the return of the annual Turing Talk, a free event which takes place across the UK, in honour and recognition of Turing's contribution to the field of computing. This year’s Turing Talk 2019 is Engineering a fair future: Why we need to train unbiased AI.

Turing Talk 2019 will address machine decision making and whether there is potential for bias and unfairness in algorithmic decisions. As AI is increasingly being used to assist or replace human decision making, concerns have been raised about the potential for unfairness when it comes to banking, recruitment, judiciary and journalism.

In in this free talk, we will attempt to tackle the following foundational questions about man-machine decision making:

(a) How do machines learn to make biased or unfair decisions?

(b) How can we quantify (measure) and control (mitigate) bias or unfairness in machine decision making?

© Can machine decisions be engineered to help humans control (mitigate) bias or unfairness in their own decisions?

Our key speaker Dr Krishna Gummadi is the head of the Networked Systems research group at the Max Planck Institute for Software Systems (MPI-SWS) and a professor at the University of Saarland in Germany.
