Event Description

Computer vision meets fairness

Computer vision systems are pervasive: from sorting postal mail to unlocking a phone with FaceID to playing a game with Kinect, this technology is shaping more aspects of our lives than we sometimes realize. Yet more and more historical societal biases are making their way into these seemingly innocuous systems. In this talk, we'll dive deeper both into the technical reasons and the potential solutions for algorithmic fairness in computer vision.
