As Facebook's artificial intelligence technology gets smarter and more important to the social network's sprawling business, the company is working to keep its AI systems from ethical lapses. The company has built a system called Fairness Flow that can measure for potential biases for or against particular groups of people, research scientist Isabel Kloumann said at Facebook's F8 conference on Wednesday.
At Facebook’s annual developer conference this month, data scientist Isabel Kloumann described a kind of automatic adviser for the company’s engineers called Fairness Flow. It measures how machine-learning software analyzing data performs on different categories—say men and women, or people in different countries—to help expose potential biases.
CS Professors Carla Gomes and Bart Selman were awarded a 2017 DURIP (Defense University Research Instrumentation Program) to develop a platform for computational and data intensive methods for large-scale intelligent distributed systems.
The Association for Women in Mathematics (AWM) and the Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) have selected Éva Tardos to deliver the Sonia Kovalevsky Lecture at the 2018 SIAM Annual Meeting.
The American Physical Society is celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Physical Review and has selected 50 “milestone” research papers spanning a wide range of important results. Fittingly, a few of those papers feature Cornell researchers.
