    Invitation to join the UnBias project stakeholder panel

    ISOC UK participants interested in the increasing role of algorithms in mediating access to information are invited to join the UnBias project stakeholder panel.

    The UnBias project [http://unbias.wp.horizon.ac.uk] aims to develop recommendations for the regulation, design and education related to the role of algorithms in mediating access to information (e.g. search engines, recommender systems).

    As part of our project we are running a series of online and offline stakeholder engagement activities. We invite stakeholders from academia, education, government, civil society, media, industry and entrepreneurs to join us in exploring the causes and remedies for unjustified/unintended algorithm bias and its impact of user trust. More details about the stakeholder engagement workshops is available at: http://unbias.wp.horizon.ac.uk/work-packages/wp4-stakeholder-engagement/invitation-for-stakeholder-engagement/

    If you are interested in joining our stakeholder activities, please contact ansgar.koene@nottingham.ac.uk
