Millennium Café series to feature special editions in October, November

The Millennium Café, held every Tuesday by the Materials Research Institute (MRI) featuring two talks by Penn State researchers that serve as an exchange of ideas and solutions, will hold three special sessions in October and November.

Vasant Honavar named Huck Chair in Biomedical Data Sciences and AI

Vasant Honavar, professor in the College of Information Sciences and Technology, has been named the Dorothy Foehr Huck and J. Lloyd Huck Chair in Biomedical Data Sciences and Artificial Intelligence by the University’s Huck Institutes of the Life Sciences.

Researchers deploy AI to detect bias in AI and humans

Researchers have developed a tool using artificial intelligence (AI) to detect unfair bias in protected areas such as race or gender. The tool could be used in finding bias in AI systems or even bias by human decisions makers, according to the researchers at Penn State and Columbia University.

What is bias in AI really, and why can’t AI neutralize it?

Selection algorithms everywhere are exhibiting traits that appear to be racist, sexist, and otherwise discriminatory. Have neural networks already developed their own neuropathy? Or are people somehow the problem?

AI to fight unfair discrimination

Researchers developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool for detecting unfair discrimination such as race or gender.

Penn State researchers develop bias-detecting technology

Researchers at Penn State and Columbia University have developed artificial intelligence technology that can detect unfair discrimination within specific demographics.

Artificial intelligence tool can identify gender and racial bias

Scientists have developed a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool for detecting unfair discrimination—such as on the basis of race or gender.

Researchers Create New AI Tool for Detecting Unfair Discrimination

Penn State and Columbia University researchers have created a new artificial intelligence tool to detect unfair discrimination based on gender and race. For example, a long-standing concern of civilized societies has been preventing unfair treatment of individuals based on gender, race, or ethnicity.

US researchers create AI tool that can detect discrimination on basis of race, gender

A team of researchers at Pennsylvania State and Columbia University created an artificial intelligence (AI) tool for detecting discrimination with respect to a protected attribute, such as race or gender.

'AI will see you now': Panel to discuss the AI revolution in health and medicine

​This month’s CyberScience Seminar, organized by the Institute for CyberScience (ICS), will be held from 1:30–3 p.m. on Thursday, April 11, in 233B HUB-Robeson Center and will feature a panel of Penn State experts who will discuss the benefits — and the risks — of using AI in the healthcare industry.​
