Launch A+ Alliance for Inclusive Algorithms [Online only]
8 October 2019Free
On the occasion of Ada Lovelace Day, 8 October 2019, which commemorates the first computer programmer, brilliant mathematician and technology visionary Ada Lovelace, Women@theTable and Ciudadania Inteligente are super excited to launch a new website and a media campaign dedicated to the <A+> Alliance for Affirmative Action for Algorithms.
Because we can either seize the moment to correct bias in the digital realm, as we tackle bias in the analogue world, or condemn ourselves to old bias baked into the future century of Automated Decision-Making (ADM) that is trained by machine learning on biased data sets.
The website launches in three languages English, Spanish and Portuguese and it includes policy and technology recommendations. Soon, it will include pilots testing how the recommendations operate in real life.
If you have any questions about the Ada Lovelace Day events calendar, or have any other problems, please email us. Please note that you CANNOT add an event without registering for an account or logging in FIRST.
