27 March, Algorithmic fairness: Examples from predictive models for criminal justice Dr Kristian Lum, Human Rights Data Analysis Group (HRDAG)

The series is named after Ross Ihaka, Associate Professor in the Department of Statistics at the University of Auckland. Ross, along with Robert Gentleman, co-created R – a statistical programming language now used by the majority of the world’s practicing statisticians. It is hard to over-emphasise the importance of Ross’s contribution to our field. We named this lecture series in his honour to recognise his work and contributions to our field in perpetuity.
