The 2019 paper "The Unreasonable Fairness of Maximum Nash Welfare" by ACM Transactions on Economics and Computation (TEAC) has been awarded the 2024 Prize in Game Theory and Computer Science of the Game Theory Society in Honour of Ehud Kalai. The prize is given every four years in recognition of Kalai’s role in promoting the connection of the two research areas.
The ACM-W Rising Star Award recognizes exceptional women or non-binary individuals whose early-career research has had a significant impact on the computing discipline, as measured by factors such as frequent citation of their work, creation of a new research area, a high degree of technology transfer, and/or other positive influences and societal impact. Self-nominations are encouraged. The award is given annually, and the recipient will receive a framed certificate and a $1,000 stipend. Nominations close on March 31, 2024.
This talk was a follow-up to the April 19, 2023 webinar with Mehran Sahami of Stanford University, "Confronting Ethical Challenges in a High-Tech World." Sahami and a panel of AI-ML experts from industry and academia—Tulsee Doshi, Susan Epstein, and Kush Varshney—explored some of the ethical questions raised in that session including the role of human values in AI algorithms, bias in AI-ML and the impact of diverse teams in reducing bias, and data privacy. The talk was moderated by Fay Cobb Payton and Susan Reiser of the DEI-CE.
