Workshop on Inequalities in the age of AI, what they are, how they work and what we can do about them - 19/11 - Brussels

She’s interested as well -> https://www.linkedin.com/in/christinawunder/

Ciao Nadia,

First of all sorry for the delay, been difficult days lately for me regarding my availability outside basic work duty.

It is indeed time to launch the communication:

Ideally I would need to create an event on www.digityser.org/events that would obviously point towards here to allow people to register the way you want them to be registered etc…

wanted :
Banner image + description + Title of the event + date/hour (program format more or less)

Regarding a pre-meetup on the 10th : do you want to reschedule this ? Our place is pretty much open for this but You need to pick a date because we have a bunch of events/hackathons this week & the next one that will take most of our time.

Maybe the best would be to provide an invitation/concept about the event and we could invite all our contacts so that would avoid you to make a physical meetup just to share the format/methodology of the event ?

ok @anon82932460 can I ask you to coordinate with @MariaEuler to get appropriate communication materials to @rmdes for digityser’s events website, as well as for posting on/via Digityser’s social media/communication channels?

Meanwhile I’m going to create an event on our side with the info I gather from here.
Registration link will be the festival registration page, is that ok ?

Hi guys,

I would like to join the workshop, but I’m not sure I qualify. My work only touches sideways on the world of AI. I currently help the Flemish Public Employment Service set up an open innovation program. There’s lots of talk about AI in the air (the PES also has it own AI lab). There are big promises for AI to reduce inequalities on the job market by objective matching and data analysis. I’m often one of the more critical voices in the room, asking for caution and reflection. I want to join this workshop to learn, I don’t think I’ll have much to teach… Which I guess is one of the prerequisites for claiming a ticket?
Some feedback would be appreciated :slight_smile:

Ciao and welcome - yes of course you can join us!

The best way to get started is to read the personal introductions of other participants and leave thoughtful comments to help us move the thinking forward. You will find them here: https://edgeryders.eu/c/ioh/tell-us-about-you

Then it would make sense for you to share a similar prost sharing your own experiences and reflections, including what you would like to explore with other participants in the workshop.

If you would like to schedule an interview with another participant, I would suggest picking a few time slots that would best for you here: https://doodle.com/meetme/qc/ivSwRDQSjt

Don’t hesitate to ask if you have any questions etc

Hey Kira, definitely yes. I think a good starting point is to read the posts by other participants, and leave thoughtful comments with your own reflections or questions around the topics. Then if and when you feel comfortable - posting a personal introduction with some thoughts around what you would like to dig deeper into based on what you have read so far. Both what others have posted, and where you can create your own introduction are found here: https://edgeryders.eu/c/ioh/tell-us-about-you

Hi @nadia,

I have added part of my story here: How to balance the needs of the individual and the collective? Collective Intelligence and more....

And for this specific workshop, I could give a talk about AI as a person from the field. I studied at the Swiss AI institute, IDSIA, and I can tell a personal story about Google DeepMind, the AI company of Google. This was a startup of very good friends of mine from IDSIA. And this can serve as a way to create some ‘panel’ talks/discussions.

Warm regards,
Liliana.
