Responsible DS + AI Speaker Series: Su Lin Blodgett, Microsoft Research
Su Lin Blodgett, postdoctoral researcher in the Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, and Ethics (FATE) group at Microsoft Research Montréal, will present "Towards Building Equitable Language Technologies."
Su Lin Blodgett is broadly interested in examining the social implications of natural language processing technologies. Her work currently focuses on better conceptualizing and measuring harms arising from language technologies, and on uncovering practices, assumptions, and constraints surrounding the production of these technologies. Previously, she completed her Ph.D. in computer science at the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
