Welcome to our Workshop on Responsible Data!

The development of large-scale datasets has been essential to the progress of machine learning and artificial intelligence. However, many of these datasets are not inclusive or diverse - particularly computer vision datasets, which can lead to biased models and algorithms. This workshop will bring together practitioners and researchers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of building more responsible datasets.

The workshop will cover a range of topics, including:

Post workshop, we plan to write a white paper summarizing the round table discussions and opinions from experts in the field (with necessary permissions). We will also follow through with making a community space on discord (or similar platform) to continue the community building and collaboration post-workshop.


Call for Papers

Authors are invited to submit relevent research (including work in progress, novel perspectives, etc.) as extended abstracts for the poster session and workshop discussion. Please see relevent topics above. Accepted abstracts will be presented at the poster session, and will not be included in the printed proceedings of the workshop.

The extended abstract can be at most 4 pages long in CVPR format, not including references. Authors may supply supplementary material, however, reviewers will not be required to read this material. Reviews will be double blind. The submission deadline is March 31, 2024.

Submit your extended abstracts through OpenReview.

Dr. Sara Beery is the Homer A. Burnell Career Development Professor in the MIT Faculty of Artificial Intelligence and Decision-Making. She was previously a visiting researcher at Google, working on large-scale urban forest monitoring as part of the Auto Arborist project. She received her PhD in Computing and Mathematical Sciences at Caltech in 2022, where she was advised by Pietro Perona and awarded the Amori Doctoral Prize for her thesis. Her research focuses on building computer vision methods that enable global-scale environmental and biodiversity monitoring across data modalities, tackling real-world challenges including geospatial and temporal domain shift, learning from imperfect data, fine-grained categories, and long-tailed distributions. She partners with industry, nongovernmental organizations, and government agencies to deploy her methods in the wild worldwide. She works toward increasing the diversity and accessibility of academic research in artificial intelligence through interdisciplinary capacity building and education, and has founded the AI for Conservation slack community, serves as the Biodiversity Community Lead for Climate Change AI, and founded and directs the Summer Workshop on Computer Vision Methods for Ecology.

Dr. William Agnew coming soon.

Nati Catalan is a seasoned professional with a background in Computer Science and Mathematics, boasting two decades of leadership in startups and enterprises. Over the past 9 years, Nati has passionately dedicated efforts to bridging the gap between artificial intelligence and human intuition. As the Co-Founder of Tasq.ai, Nati champions the cause of incorporating humans in machine learning solutions. Nati is a firm advocate for the essential role of human guidance in responsible AI development, whose challenges he solves with global, diverse, and responsible human input on an unprecedented scale. This approach has positioned Tasq.ai a unique platform for Data Science and ML teams, especially those pursuing Responsible AI in an effortless and scalable way.

Sven Cattell coming soon.

Morgan Klaus Scheuerman coming soon.

Emily McReynolds (She/Her) has worked in data protection, machine learning & AI, across academia, civil society, and in the tech industry. In previous roles, she led partnerships with civil society & industry engagement on responsible AI at Meta, and created end-to-end data strategy for ML development at Microsoft. With a passion for translating complex technical concepts into understandable sound bites, she has spearheaded a number of tech explanation projects including AI System Cards, a resource for understanding how AI works in different contexts. She was the founding program director for the University of Washington’s Tech Policy Lab, an interdisciplinary collaboration across the Computer Science, Information, and Law schools. She started coding in the time of HTML and taught people to use computers back when we used floppy disks.
