A NEWLY EU FUNDED PROJECT ANNOUNCES ITS LAUNCH
Multiple benefits to the society are foreseen as Cyprus Center for Algorithmic Transparency (CyCAT) addresses the issue of algorithmic transparency in social and cultural settings.
The Cyprus Center for Algorithmic Transparency (CyCAT) and the Open University of Cyprus (OUC) as the coordinator of the H2020 Widespread Twinning Project “CyCAT,” have the pleasure to invite you to attend the CyCAT Opening Event and Press Conference, which will take place at the Bank of Cyprus Cultural Foundation in Old Nicosia City on October 9th, 2018 at 09:30 a.m.
Algorithms and Big Data analytics play an increasing role in citizens’ lives, as they underlie popular information services and “smart” technologies, which are rapidly being adopted across sectors of society, from transportation to education to healthcare.
But many of the algorithms that underlie our modern information ecosystem are not transparent and not neutral. Are we aware of the social and political consequences of algorithmic biases?
The CyCAT Research Team from the Open University of Cyprus, along with its Advanced Partners from The University of Sheffield, University of Haifa, University of Trento and The University of Edinburgh are preparing an outstanding event, where researchers’ insights and vision for the project will be shared with the public.
