Expert Hour Webinar: Ethics in Data Science

How can we make algorithms more ethical than humans?

From self-driving cars to automated personal assistants, artificial intelligence is well on its way to impacting every facet of our daily lives. Already, industries and governments are relying on machine learning to make important decisions that will have a real effect on the lives of consumers and citizens.

This raises an important question: how can we make algorithms more ethical than humans?

The Warren Centre is proud to present Dr Roman Marchant and friend

Dr Marchant completed a PhD at the School of Information Technologies, University of Sydney in 2015. His current research at the Centre for Translational Data Science explores applying data science to the social sciences, currently focusing on predicting crime and understanding criminal behaviour. His area of expertise is Sequential Bayesian Optimisation (SBO), which is a novel probabilistic method for finding the optimal sequence of decisions that maximise a long-term reward. Although SBO has been readily applied to robotics and environmental monitoring, it can be applied to any optimisation problem.
