The second ReEnTrust workshop will take place on Friday 6th December at the Mary Ward House Conference and Exhibition Centre in London.
In this workshop they will build on the outcomes of the previous workshop, moving from the exploration of algorithm trust issues to focus on practical solutions and present their latest technology tools and prototypes, designed to help users develop their trust in online algorithms.
Aims of stakeholder workshops
ReEnTrust stakeholder workshops bring together individuals from a range of professional backgrounds to share differing perspectives on issues of trust in relation to algorithmic decision-making. Workshops are aimed to generate well-rounded insights rather than focusing solely on technology solutions.
Workshop discussions will be summarised in written reports and will be used to inform other activities in the project. This includes the production of policy recommendations and the development of an experimental online tool that will enable users to evaluate and critique algorithms used by online platforms, and to facilitate dialogue and collective reflection with these platforms in order to jointly recover from trust breakdowns with the help of AI-driven mediation technologies.
Structure of the 2nd stakeholders workshop
In the first workshop, we focused on understanding what trust means. In this follow-up workshop, we aim to gain feedback and invite you to contribute co-designing of our online tool prototype, which is aimed to help users establish the trust of algorithms, such as transparency, reliability, etc.
To this end, we will present two of our latest research tools:
Being able to understand how algorithms work and how results are generated will support and improve users’ trust of the algorithms and corresponding results.
The workshop will consist of two parts.
Privacy/confidentiality and data protection
Workshops will be audio recorded and transcribed. This in order to facilitate our analysis and ensure that we capture all the detail of what is discussed. We will remove or pseudonymise the names of participating individuals and organisations, as well as other potentially identifying details. We will not reveal the identities of any participants (except at the workshops themselves) unless we are given explicit permission to do so. We will also ask all participants to observe the Chatham House rule – meaning that views expressed can be reported back elsewhere but that individual names and affiliations cannot.
