DEEP 2022 is digging deeper—remotely!
Since last year, the conversations have been coming to you. Featuring highly knowledgeable guest speakers and engaging discussions, Digging DEEPer events have explored topics such as AI bias, future of work, Indigenous future imaginaries and AI-powered assistive technology. We will be continuing our online We Count Digging DEEPer Series into 2022. Visit the Events page for the full schedule and check back often for news and updates. We look forward to seeing you at Digging DEEPer events!
The IDRC at OCAD University, with the support of Kessler Foundation and Microsoft, has launched ODD (Optimizing Diversity with Disability). The goal of ODD is to investigate bias in hiring algorithms using non-disability-specific and synthesized disability-specific employment data. In the next year, we will work with the community to create synthetic models of resume and job seeker data that will be tested with online hiring systems. Our objective is to better understand how to mitigate algorithmic bias and to use this knowledge in future projects to develop algorithms that can optimize diversity.
This video presentation examines how AI technology is utilized in recruitment and selection, its implications for candidates with disabilities, and the question of accessibility and diversity.
The recording of our Sentiment Analysis Workshop is now available on our YouTube channel!
We Count wants to help small organizations and their members get into the data ecosystem with a free, accessible workshop. In this three-part workshop, you will learn how to complete a sentiment analysis and build your own data set, gaining in-depth knowledge about the process and the tools involved, as well as how to become a part of the data ecosystem.
