Event Description

Data science and AI are having a significant impact on society in uncountable ways, leading to huge benefits in many cases. Yet, increasingly complex analytical pipelines working with poorly understood heterogeneous data sets can give rise to harm in many ways. Furthermore, there could be deleterious systemic effects such as the magnification of disinformation or surveillance capitalism. There has been tremendous recent interest in understanding and managing these concerns.

This mini-symposium is part of the Future Leader Summit program, a three-day event which brings together outstanding graduate students and postdocs from around the US to engage in research discussions with peers and with research leaders, and receive career mentoring, as they grow to become future research leaders in data science and Artificial Intelligence (AI).
