Shilad Sen, Associate Professor of Computer Science at Macalester College will be giving a talk.
Title: Harnessing Wikipedia for Computational Good
Abstract: Algorithms rely on Wikipedia to reason about the world. However, Wikipedia exhibits gender bias and geographic inequalities. How does this affect the algorithms that learn from Wikipedia? In this talk I will identify inequalities in Wikipedia content, describe a new map-based visualization that reveals pattern in bias, and explore how these dynamics affect the algorithms that learn from Wikipedia.
