This event is the third of four events in our 'Failed it to Nailed it - Getting Data Sharing Right' series. In this event we aim to provide information and advice on different areas of data governance and legislation. The event includes talks on different aspects of this including the ethical dimensions of research data management and different types of legislation with respect to personal and non personal data. We will also be including an interactive breakout session using a set of Moral IT cards developed by researchers at the University of Nottingham: https://lachlansresearch.com/the-moral-it-legal-it-decks/

This year the AI3SD Network+ (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) will be running a workshop at the WebSci20 Conference in Southampton, UK. Artificial and Augmented Intelligence systems have the potential to make a real difference in the scientific discovery domain however this brings a new wealth of ethical and societal implications to consider with regards to this research (e.g. human enhancement, algorithmic biases, risk of detriment). This workshop looks to explore the ethical and societal issues centered around using intelligent technologies (Artificial Intelligence, Augmented Intelligence, Machine Learning, and in general Semantic Web Knowledge Technologies) to further scientific discovery, with a strong consideration of data ethics and algorithmic accountability. Advances in technology and software are rarely inherently bad in themselves, however that unfortunately does not preclude them from being subverted to ill intent by others; furthermore, as demonstrated by the examples above, even an unintentional lack of care towards ethical codes and algorithmic accountability can lead to societal and ethical implications of scientific discovery. It is our responsibility as researchers to consider these issues in our research; are we conducting studies ethically? What ethical codes can we put in place for scientific discovery research to mitigate against ethical and societal issues. These are really important issues, and they require an interdisciplinary focus between scientists, social scientists and technical experts in order to be comprehensively addressed.

This event is brought to you by the AI3SD (Artificial Intelligence and Augmented Intelligence for Automated Investigations for Scientific Discovery) and the IoFT (Internet of Food things) Networks. As food allergies and intolerances are on the rise, allergen detection and awareness is becoming more critical than ever at all stages of the food production pipeline; from cleaning the factories and kitchens the food is produced in, to detecting allergens in food, right through to creating allergen free food in the future. Unsurprisingly research has turned to technological solutions to combat this issue. This workshop is centered around the usage of Artificial Intelligence in Allergen Detection and Smart Cleaning within Food Production; research areas that co-align between both AI3SD & IoFT. The workshop will begin with some thought provoking talks to report on the current state of affairs, and consider where we need to be going in the future. There are five main working group topics identified for this workshop, and talks will be given on the different aspects that need to be considered with respect to allergen detection and smart cleaning before we break into the working groups for more formal discussions. There are multiple sessions for the working group discussions, and so there will be opportunities to take part in as many group discussions as you wish. The workshop will be formally recorded and the suggestions for going forward will be captured in a position paper. Lunch will be provided and the workshop will end with networking drinks.
