Simons Institute Workshop — Wrong at the Root: Racial Bias and the Tension Between Numbers and Words in Non-Internet Data

Workshop | June 5 – 7, 2019 every day | 9 a.m.-5 p.m. |  Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing)

 Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing

Artificially intelligent systems extrapolate from historical training data. While the training process is robust to “noisy” data, systematically biased data will inexorably lead to biased systems. The emerging field of algorithmic fairness seeks interventions to blunt the downstream effects of data bias. Initial work has focused on classification and prediction algorithms.

Catalytic Enantioselective Redox-Neutral Processes for Efficient Chemical Synthesis

Seminar | June 5 | 11 a.m.-12 p.m. | 775 Tan Hall

 Prof. Yu Zhao, National University of Singapore

 College of Chemistry

The development of economical and selective catalytic methods are vital to sustainable chemical synthesis. My group at National University of Singapore focuses on the identification of catalytic enantioselective redox-neutral transformations to access valuable chiral building blocks in organic synthesis. Such methods have the significant advantage of circumventing the redundant...   More >
