European Chapter Awards

Best Presentation, 2024 EC & SIG-AI Symposium on AI


Alicia Takaoka, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU)

Title and abstract
Design, Creation, and Participation: How to include people for a more ethical design process.
With the rise of AI, algorithms, and autonomous systems embedded in our daily lives, researchers as well as the general public are questioning the process. It is evident that biases are embedded into systems that are intended to help people, but no input in the design, creation, or development process is gathered from those respective communities. In this presentation, the definitions of design, creation, and testing will be presented. Strategies to identify and solicit participation from people usually omitted from the decision-making process will be identified, and a sample case will be shared.

Purpose of the Award

The purpose of this award is to recognise the best presentation made by an author of an accepted submission at the 2024 Online research symposium on AI for Early Career Researchers and PhD Students, held 25.3.2024 and co-organised by the ASIST European Chapter and ASIST SIG-AI.
