MDI Workshop: When is AI biased? Measuring Fairness in Machine Learning Models

Thursday, March 25th & Friday, March 26th

10-11:30 am EDT

Even if you have limited knowledge about machine learning and how it works, it is impacting many aspects of your life.

Nowadays, more and more decisions are being made using algorithms and predictive models. Unfortunately, some of these models discriminate against certain subpopulations. This workshop will begin by explaining how a machine learning model works. We will then examine how a model might be biased and how different types of bias can infiltrate learning algorithms. We then consider different approaches for measuring unfairness and present different methods for reducing unfairness.

PubMed Basics from Dahlgren Memorial Library

May 11th, 12-1 pm EDT

This is the first workshop in a series of four to help improve your PubMed searching skills, as well as manage and track your use of MyNCBI and ORCID.

Attend the PubMed Basics workshop and we’ll help you get comfortable with the “new” PubMed interface design and functionality.

First, we’ll orient you to the new PubMed design. Then, we will show you how to optimize and refine your searches, and get beyond searches that are “good enough” to searches that are actually good. If you need MEDLINE articles for your latest research project, review article, or assignment, this workshop will teach you to use PubMed more easily and effectively.
