Dr. Stefan Baack
, media and datafication researcher, discusses how recent changes the mission of the non-profit software development organization Mozilla might create new opportunities for collaborations with academia.
About the Presentation
In recent years, the non-profit software development organization Mozilla has shifted its interests from promoting open source technology (like the open-source browser Firefox) towards issues like algorithmic bias, datafication and agency, and internet governance. The foundation has decided to dedicate the majority of its resources to advocate for ‘trustworthy AI’. This can bring new opportunities for collaborations between Mozilla and academia.
Stefan Baack will present the ‘trustworthy AI’ theme in more detail and show some of Mozilla’s recent activities (like the Internet Health Report) which might allow interesting new research fields and methods.
