Tackling Bias in Data Science: from Prediction to Intervention

A Workshop on Transdisciplinary Data Science

November 15–17, 2021

Wyndham Grand Clearwater Beach

100 Coronado Drive, Clearwater, FL 33767

The second edition of DAISY focuses on bias at large in data science, from models–biased predictions that fail to generalize or reiterate disparity–to people–structural barriers to inclusion and equity.

The symposium will feature invited talks and roundtables with academic researchers, industry, and federal agency representatives.

As in the DAISY tradition, transdisciplinarity is key. Themes will encompass individuals’ health & work life, and organizational perspectives. The common thread is ‘how to surpass biased prediction models that project a haunted past into intervention models that can change our future for the better’.
