Is Discrimination a Default in Today’s Computational Systems?

Is Discrimination a Default in Today’s Computational Systems?

November 08, 2018
4:30-6PM

Location: 

INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS BUILDING 270B

Event Type: 

Is Discrimination a Default in
Today’s Computational Systems?
 
Prof. Meredith Broussard, Data Journalism at NYU
 
THURSDAY, NOV. 8, 2018, 4:30-6PM
INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS BUILDING 270B
 
This talk explores the computational side of social issues like the rise of disinformation, the Facebook/Cambridge Analytica scandal, autonomous car deaths, and online harassment. Broussard argues that these social ills can be understood as arising from a kind of bias called technochauvinism that sees computational solutions as superior to all others. Technochauvinism intersects with other social ills such as racial and gender bias in counterproductive ways.

Cognition and Decision Seminar Series - Pietro Ortoleva

Cognition and Decision Seminar Series - Pietro Ortoleva

November 15, 2018
4:15 pm - 5:30 pm

Location: 

Greene Science Center, 9th floor Lecture Hall

Event Type: 

The Cognition and Decision Seminar Series brings together scholars from economics, psychology, neuroscience and other fields who are united by an interest in the cognitive mechanisms involved in decision making and related behavior, and the ways in which a better understanding of these mechanisms can lead to more accurate models of human behavior and more effective public policies. Research presented in the seminars employs a variety of methods, including but not limited to physiological measurement of nervous systems, observation of decision making in laboratory settings, computational modeling of decision processes, and normative analyses of optimal decisions subject to information constraints or limits on the complexity of processing.

The seminar meets from 4:15-5:30 PM, generally on Thursdays in the Greene Science Center, 9th floor Lecture Hall (press for directions). Registration is required, in order to allow entry to the building.

The seminar organizers are Mark Dean, Eric Johnson, Michael Shadlen, Daphna Shohamy, and Michael Woodford. The Cognition and Decision Seminar Series is jointly sponsored by the Cognitive and Behavioral Economics Initiativeof the Department of Economics, and the Center for Decision Sciences of Columbia Business School.

About the workshop:

Since late 2012, the Columbia Population Research Center and the Center on Poverty and Social Policy have been collecting innovative new survey data from representative panels of adults in New York City. Dubbed the "Poverty Tracker," the study surveys New Yorkers every three months, collecting detailed information on income poverty, material hardship, health, and other forms of disadvantage and wellbeing. The first panel was surveyed for two years starting in late 2012, and a second panel is currently being surveyed for four years starting in 2015 (with new adults added to the panel in 2017). This data workshop will introduce attendees to the structure of the data and provide helpful information on how to access and use the datasets to understand dynamics of poverty and disadvantage in New York City and many other important research, policy, and program questions.
