The Department of Computer Science invites you to a colloquium delivered by mathematician, data scientist, and author Cathy O'Neil. She will outline the kinds of problems we face with powerful, opaque, and unfair algorithms being deployed against workers, consumers, and citizens. She will talk about the technical approaches we could take to addressing the problems. She will also discuss what kind of inquiry could or should take place in academia versus industry or Washington D.C.
