Dag 2: WORKSHOPSESSIONS FOR PHD STUDENTS
The day takes off with a three sessions followed by mingle.


08:30-11:30: Algorithmic Fairness
(including short break for coffee/tea)

Thore Husfeldt, Professor of Computer Science, Lund University

A brief introduction to some of the concepts relating to the emerging field of algorithmic fairness. The presentation includes some motivating examples, and covers various fairness definitions, algorithms and possible interventions, sources of bias in data, transparency in algorithms and machine learning, process versus outcome, statistical parity, calibration, classification and ranking.

Thore Husfeldt is Professor of Computer Science, Lund University and Associate professor, IT University of Copenhagen and the chair of the Swedish Research Council's (Vetenskapsrådets) panel for computer science. He is a leading algorithms researcher, one of the core researchers of the Basic Algorithms Research Copenhagen centre in Denmark, a member of the European Council for Theoretical Computer Science and the Presburger Award committee. His research focus is on algebraic graph algorithms, but he is an experienced generalist and science communicator with a broad overview of computer science at its relation to other disciplines. He has founded the Algorithmic Fairness Copenhagen interest group AlfaHaf.
