Annenberg Conversations on Gender: From Algorithm Audits to Accountability | Annenberg School for Communication
In this conversation, Duncan Watts and Danaë Metaxa will discuss Metaxa’s research using algorithm audits to measure gender and racial bias in online services such as Google Images. In addition to exploring the relevance of Metaxa’s work to algorithmic systems, the discussion will also touch on the importance of reconciling the sometimes competing epistemic values of computer science and social science, as well as the clash between the general and the particular. Finally, they will discuss the relationship between a researchers’ own identity, the work they choose to do, and the way both are perceived in a sometimes hostile professional environment.
