ODSC Keynote: Getting Specific About Algorithmic Bias
ODSC Keynote: Getting Specific About Algorithmic Bias

Abstract: 

The concept of "biased data" is often too generic to be useful. Through a series of cases studies, we will explore what algorithmic bias is, different types (with different causes), and debunk some common misconceptions. We will cover why algorithmic bias is a problem worth addressing and some steps towards solutions.
