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. The goal was to support municipalities during different phases of a data science project to create trustworthy and fair algorithms. For example, a prototype Starters Kit for fair algorithms was developed. In addition, special attention was paid to proper documentation of algorithms and decisions based upon them. We will present some highlights from this work.

This is the fifth webinar in the series ‘Humane Conversations’ which is organised by the UvA’s Research Priority Area Human(e) AI.
The webinar series Humane Conversations connects researchers from various disciplines to discuss AI research topics, with a particular focus on human-centred AI. The first speaker was Prof. Max Welling, from the UvA Faculty of Science, who addressed the topic What’s happening in AI research and what does it mean for Humane AI?
The University of Amsterdam has designated Human(e) AI as one of its research priority areas. The aim is to bring synergy to ongoing work on AI and stimulate new research at the UvA on the societal consequences of the rapid development of artificial intelligence and automated decision-making.
