DataEthics4All is hosting the Ethics4NextGen AI Hackathon to raise the next generation of Inclusive AI.

Date: September 17-20, 2020

Who can Participate: People from all backgrounds – technical and nontechnical are invited to participate in this unique Hackathon.

Everyone is welcome to participate in this hackathon: Attorneys, Ethicists, Healthcare Professionals, Policy Makers, Law Keepers, concerned Citizens, Marketers, Designers, Developers, Educators, Entrepreneurs, Researchers, Engineers, Analysts, and Data Scientists.

Ages: For anyone age 16+

The Problem.

We believe that in order to remove systemic discrimination, it’s important to raise the next generation of Inclusive AI algorithms.

Algorithms that are unbiased because the data fed into them are inclusive. Inclusive of all Race, Gender, Color, and Socioeconomic Backgrounds.

Train AI systems with biased data and there will be biased inferences. Fair representation in data is the key to solving all of these issues because DATA MATTERS. CONTEXT MATTERS.

The Ethics4NextGen AI Hackathon is our way of taking Action and standing up to unjust and unfair societal behavior.

Participants will bring unique and creative solutions to these problems.

Ideal Teams will be inclusive and diverse with people from technical and nontechnical backgrounds, as well as people from impacted communities.

Hackathon Challenges.

We have 3 exciting Hackathon Challenges: AI in Criminal Justice, AI in Predictive Policing and AI in COVID-19 Contact Tracing.

AI in Criminal Justice

AI in Criminal Justice

AI in criminal justice system is used to predict re-offense rates, determine prison time, the granting of parole and the setting of bail bonds. Your freedom hangs on an algorithm that assigns weights and points to your life. Who makes sure the AI is fair and just? You do! How will you do that?

AI in Predictive Policing

AI in Predictive Policing

AI in Predictive Policing is basically a nightmarish sequel of the movie Minority Report. Launched to help curb crime, it has been used against the Black, Hispanic communities, criminalizing their locations and their movements. Do you see any good in this tech? Can it be salvaged to benefit us?

AI in Contact Tracing

AI in COVID-19 Contact Tracing

AI is inside Covid-19 Contact tracing Apps. To track your symptoms, and your every movement to alert your local authorities, your neighbors and friends. How do you know that this is all for your benefit? Will it be used against you later? If yes, how will you stop it? If no, how can you be so sure?

Is there fair representation in the Dataset/s you’ve chosen to work with for your Challenge?

Can you prove that there is or isn’t fair representation in the Dataset/s you’re working with?

2. Examine the AI Model

Can you prove that the methods and domains used and the assumptions in the AI Models are fair or that they are biased?

3. Ask the Right Questions

How we can we be as objective and inclusive as possible as we interrogate and present data as well as interpret it’s results?

4. Creative Ways of Correction

How do we detect and correct biased inferences from an incorrectly trained ML?

5. Fair Representation in Data

How can we ensure that there is fair representation in data for all protected characteristics?
