The 66th Bernard Price Memorial Lecture will be presented by Professor Fulufhelo Nelwamondo

He will present some of the challenges of embedded prejudice in machine learning algorithms and will cover some observed examples and the societal effects thereof. In addition, the lecture will cover ways of designing automatic algorithms that can detect bias of this form, and some transfer learning mechanisms that can correct problematic machine learning models.
