Humane Conversations #5 – Eerlijke Algoritmen with Sigrid van Hoek, Barteld Braaksma (CBS) and Charles Jeurgens (Faculty of Humanities, UvA)

“There is a strong societal call to ensure that AI-based algorithms are designed in a responsible way. In particular, bias and discrimination should be avoided whenever possible. Recently, CBS (Statistics Netherlands) has conducted some work in this area together with several partners.

We will present some highlights from this work”
