About the Winter School 2022
The Greek ACM-W Chapter, with the support of the ACM Europe Research Visibility working group (ACM Europe RAISE), is organizing a winter school to be held annually. The main goal of the school is to offer the opportunity to young computer science professionals to learn about timely topics from top scientists from around the world.
We are living the revolution of AI. AI offers enormous opportunities, but it comes with a cost. AI-driven systems are increasingly being used in all aspects of society to assist, or even replace human decision making. Can we trust such systems? Every day, we use search, recommendations, personal assistants to help in all sorts of decisions from where to dine and what movie to watch, to more fundamental ones, such as our stance on political issues and worldwide events. AI is widely being used by public and private bodies to assist decisions in courts, in college admissions, and job recruitment. Issues of biased treatment, exclusion, and unfairness are raised, with concerns exaggerated by various cases catching the public attention.
The school will include tutorials, invited talks, and a panel. Students will be actively involved through assignments, discussions, and participation in working groups.
