Course description

Bias and Discrimination in AI

Engage in this course pertaining to a highly impactful yet, too rarely discussed, AI-related topic. You will learn from international experts in the field, also speakers at IVADO’s International School on Bias and Discrimination in AI, which took place in Montreal, and explore the social and technical aspects of bias, discrimination and fairness in machine learning and algorithm design.

The main focus of this course is: gender, race and socioeconomic-based bias as well as bias in data-driven predictive models leading to decisions. The course is primarily intended for professionals and academics with basic knowledge in mathematics and programming, but the rich content will be of great use to whomever uses, or is interested in, AI in any other way. These sociotechnical topics have proven to be great eye-openers for technical professionals!

The total duration of the video content available in this course is 7:30 hours, cut into relevant segments that you may watch at your own pace. There are also comprehensive quizzes at the end of each segment to measure your understanding of the content.

IVADO is a scientific and economic data science hub bridging industrial, academic and governmental partners with expertise in digital intelligence. One of its missions is to contribute to the advancement of digital knowledge and train new generations of bias-aware data scientists.
