WEBINAR: Human-Centered ML in Mobile and Wearable Data Ecosystems

March 7 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm UTC+0

CeADAR invites you to a webinar on Thursday, March 7th, 2024, at 11 AM Dublin time, featuring Sofia Yfantidou from Aristotle University of Thessaloniki. Sofia is a prominent figure in the field of Human-Centred AI, with a focus on mobile and wearable data. Register for the event here.

About the Talk:

The tech talk will explore the fascinating convergence of mobile and wearable technologies, machine learning algorithms, and human-centred concerns within the Ubiquitous Computing domain. This convergence has opened up numerous industrial applications, from healthcare monitoring to workplace safety, remote assistance, and more. However, the enthusiastic adoption of machine learning in such technologies raises significant ethical dilemmas and biases.

Sofia Yfantidou’s talk will delve into original research spanning user interaction, data collection, and algorithmic equity. She will propose innovative solutions to mitigate alignment challenges, including a framework for designing and evaluating technologies for behaviour change interventions, open datasets for interdisciplinary research, and methodologies for fairness-aware computing.

By emphasizing the integration of technical advancements with human-centred values, Sofia advocates for a holistic approach to mobile and wearable computing. Her talk highlights the importance of aligning machine learning systems with societal needs and expectations.
