Executive Roundtable on Promoting Diverse Voices and Fairness in AIVIEW EVENT DETAILS
Innovator, Groundbreaker, Advisory Council, and Board Member Event
Join Asia Society Northern California for an off-the-record Executive Roundtable on Promoting Diverse Voices and Fairness in AI with Diyi Yang, Assistant Professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech and Michael Bernstein, Associate Professor of Computer Science and STMicroelectronics Faculty Scholar at Stanford University. This private event is for Innovator, Groundbreaker, Advisory Council, and Board Member Event Members and will be held on Thursday, December 1, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. Pacific in Silicon Valley. Lunch will be served.
Artificial intelligence (AI) has had increasing success and produced extensive industrial applications. Despite being sufficient to enable these applications, there are growing concerns and mounting evidence of bias and discrimination encoded in these AI algorithms, especially for societally important applications such as hate speech detection. In this talk, we will discuss the possibility of new AI approaches to promote fairness by including diverse voices and detecting different forms of toxicity. The first half of the talk will feature jury learning, a supervised machine learning approach that resolves label disagreements explicitly through the metaphor of a jury. The second part studies toxicity, Anti-Asian hate speech, and racial bias by detecting, explaining and visualizing latent hatred in language. We conclude by discussing future directions and solutions that can be taken to mitigate biases in AI systems.

Diyi Yang is an assistant professor in the School of Interactive Computing at Georgia Tech. She received her PhD from Language Technologies Institute at Carnegie Mellon University in 2019. Her research interests are computational social science and natural language processing. Her research goal is to understand the social aspects of language and to build socially aware NLP systems to better support human-human and human-computer interaction. Her work has received multiple best paper nominations or awards at ACL, ICWSM, EMNLP, SIGCHI, and CSCW. She is a recipient of Forbes 30 under 30 in Science (2020), IEEE “AI 10 to Watch” (2020), the Intel Rising Star Faculty Award (2021), Microsoft Research Faculty Fellowship (2021), and NSF CAREER Award (2022).
Michael Bernstein is an Associate Professor of Computer Science and STMicroelectronics Faculty Scholar at Stanford University, where he is a member of the Human-Computer Interaction Group. His research focuses on the design of social computing systems. This research has won best paper awards at top conferences in human-computer interaction, including CHI, CSCW, ICWSM, and UIST, and has been reported in venues such as The New York Times, New Scientist, Wired, and The Guardian. Michael has been recognized with an Alfred P. Sloan Fellowship, UIST Lasting Impact Award, and the Patrick J. McGovern Tech for Humanity Prize. He holds a bachelor's degree in Symbolic Systems from Stanford University, as well as a master's degree and a Ph.D. in Computer Science from MIT.
