Video - Can Big Data Bridge Gaps in Migration Statistics?
Description:

Traditional statistical data on international migration suffers from the problems (gaps) of inconsistency in definitions, differences in geographical coverages, absence of reasons for migration, timeliness and limitations in demographic characteristics. The global-level migration indicators are relatively under-developed; hence, countries are expected to improve capacity to generate timely, reliable, and comparable data on migration to help guide policy makers in devising evidence-based policies and plans of action to tackle migration aspects of the Social Development Goals.

Privacy in Statistical Databases 2020
Description:

Privacy in statistical databases is about finding tradeoffs to the tension between the increasing societal and economical demand for accurate information and the legal and ethical obligation to protect the privacy of individuals and enterprises which are the respondents providing the statistical data. In the case of statistical databases, the motivation for respondent privacy is one of survival: statistical agencies or survey institutes cannot expect to collect accurate information from individual or corporate respondents unless these feel the privacy of their responses is guaranteed.

Description:

Online Social Networks (OSN)' role in shaping the political debate is crucial: misinformation in OSNs demonstrated to be an efficient tool for distorting and diverting the public discourse. The spread of hoaxes, propaganda, and rumors had an impact on different areas of social interest, such as political elections, public health and social tensions.

eXplainable Knowledge Discovery in Data Mining XKDD2020
Description:

In the past decade, machine learning based decision systems have been widely used in a plethora of applications ranging from credit score, insurance risk, and health monitoring, in which accuracy is of the utmost importance. Although the application of these systems may bring myriad benefits, their use might involve some ethical and legal risks, such as codifying biases; jeopardizing transparency and privacy, reducing accountability.

Bias and Fairness in AI
Description:

AI techniques based on big data and algorithmic processing are increasingly used to guide decisions in important societal spheres, including hiring decisions, university admissions, loan granting, and crime prediction. They are applied by search engines, Internet recommendation systems and social media bots, influencing our perceptions of political developments and even of scientific findings. However, there are growing concerns with regard to the epistemic and normative quality of AI evaluations and predictions.
