RADCLIFFE INSTITUTE LECTURE



<http://www.radcliffe.harvard.edu/event/2018-ben-shneiderman-lecture>



*Algorithmic Accountability: Designing for Safety *

Thursday, April 19 | 4:15 PM

Science Center, Auditorium D, 1 Oxford Street, Cambridge MA



Lecture by *Ben Shneiderman*, Distinguished University Professor in the
department of computer science, founding director of the Human-Computer
Interaction Laboratory, and member of the Institute for Advanced Computer
Studies, University of Maryland, College Park



Vital services such as communications, financial trading, health care, and
transportation depend on sophisticated algorithms. Some rely on
unpredictable artificial intelligence techniques, such as deep learning,
that are increasingly embedded in complex software systems. As high-speed
trading, medical devices, and autonomous aircraft become more widely used,
stronger checks are necessary to prevent failures. Design strategies that
promote comprehensible, predictable, and controllable human-centered
systems can increase safety and make failure investigations more effective.
Social strategies that support human-centered independent oversight during
planning, continuous monitoring during operation, and retrospective
analyses following failures can play a powerful role in making more
reliable and trustworthy systems. Clarifying responsibility for failures
stimulates improved design thinking.
