Eine weitere Veranstaltung der LTS-Vortragsreihe von Univ.-Prof. Iris Eisenberger und Konrad Lachmayer in Kooperation mit dem Facultas Verlag.

Drawing from my many years of experience of the open peer production system Wikipedia, Claudia Müller-Birn introduces various means of quality assurance mechanisms that effectively combine human and algorithmic activities. By using one example of a machine learning-based, i.e., algorithmic, system, she will show possible sources of biases and explain how we can re-interprete these sources into points of participation, where humans are urgently needed to monitor, validate, configure the algorithmic systems. From these experiences, Müller-Birn infers the concept of human-machine collaboration and introduces first design parameters. Based on the provided insights, she outlines a possible integrative design approach for algorithmic systems.
