Gender Bias in NLP - Hannah Devinney, Umeå University
28 April: Gender Bias in NLP
- Hannah Devinney, Umeå University
This seminar will focus on gendered aspects of "bias": exploring what it is, how it manifests in NLP, the harms it causes, and what we as NLPers can do to combat these harms.
By practitioners, for practitioners
This is a bi-weekly webinar series for people who work with, or are interested in, NLP. The idea is to provide a platform for both academic researchers and industry practitioners to present, listen to, and discuss recent work in NLP. The main focus of the webinars is NLP development in Sweden and for the Swedish language, but international breakthroughs may also be discussed.
Each webinar features an initial 45-minute presentation that covers recent work that in some sense is relevant for Swedish NLP, followed by 45 minutes of discussion.
Time: Wednesdays odd weeks 14:00-15:30
