CVPR FATE
The Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition conference (CVPR) was held virtually on 14-19 June. As well as invited talks, posters and workshops, there were a number of tutorials on a range of topics. Timnit Gebru and Emily Denton were the organisers of one of the tutorials, which covered fairness, accountability, transparency and ethics in computer vision.

As the organisers write in the introduction to their tutorial, computer vision is no longer a purely academic endeavour; computer vision systems have been utilised widely across society. Such systems have been applied to law enforcement, border control, employment and healthcare.

Seminal works, such as the Gender Shades project (read the paper here), and organisations campaigning for equitable and accountable AI systems, such as The Algorithmic Justice League, have been instrumental in encouraging a rethink from some big tech companies regarding facial recognition systems, with Amazon, Microsoft and IBM all announcing that they would (for the time being) stop selling the technology to police forces.

This tutorial helps lay the foundations for community discussions about the ethical considerations of some of the current use cases of computer vision technology. The presentations also seek to highlight research which focusses on uncovering and mitigating issues of bias and historical discrimination.

The tutorial comprises three parts, to be watched in order.

Part 1: Computer vision in practice: who is benefiting and who is being harmed?

Speaker: Timnit Gebru

Part 2: Data ethics

Speakers: Timnit Gebru and Emily Denton

Part 3: Towards more socially responsible and ethics-informed research practices

Speaker: Emily Denton

Following the tutorial there was a panel discussion, moderated by Angjoo Kanazawa, which you can watch below.
