About the presentation

The term “fairness” means different things to different people, and the difference get wider when the problem of algorithmic fairness is considered. For a long time, the focus has been on statistical measures of fairness, some of which have been found to be mutually incompatible. Moreover, this narrow focus on fairness distracts from broader goals of justice. This talk is about the interaction between types of biases present and types of solutions that algorithms focus on. The conclusion is the need to find solutions through the field of counterfactual reasoning, which can provide a unified view on fairness.

Info about the speaker

Himanshi just graduated Master in Data Science  from the University of Eindhoven, being her Master project “Assessing Bias and Fairness in Machine Learning through a Causal Lens”.

She is a software engineer by profession and passionate about AI and its long-term implications for society.

EVENT POSTPONED TO 2021

Workshop:

Possibilities of creative coding

by Luis Ferreira, MSc.  

Date: Wednesday November 18th from 19:00 to 21:00

Place: Microlab, Eindhoven

Price: 20 Euros

 

About the workshop

Did you ever think of the computer as a tool to extend your creative skills, or even as a creative partner? Creative Coding is an emerging branch of technology with a deep impact on areas such as art, design, and education.

This workshop explains what Creative Coding is and the many forms it can take, from graphics to physical shapes, sound, movement, and more. It provides an organized and untechnical overview that will introduce you to this art form, whether you want to create something with it or leverage its potential as a professional.

What to expect?

Learn about (creative) coding from a specialist who makes art with coding! And best of all: no technical skills are needed.

You will learn:

  • the basics of (creative) coding popular techniques
  • the professional and artistic value
  • Slides with links to many interesting projects, tools, tutorials, and articles will be available after the presentation so you can follow-up on your own time.

About the trainer

Luis Ferreira is a Creative Technologist based in Eindhoven that believes technology has the ability to empower human experiences and capabilities. As a former robotics researcher and software developer, he learned how the computer’s decisions are ultimately inspired by the way humans think and act, and how they interact with their environment.

However the strictness of engineering didn’t allow for creativity to flow, so he now uses the techniques learned over the years to experiment with projects that offer a connection between the digital and the physical worlds, using different forms of input and output. His projects often range from practical software tools to experiences focused on light, color, and interaction.
