CTO Dr. Ricardo Baeza-Yates Co-Chairs the Conference, Leads Sessions on Temporal Web Analytics and Designing Equitable Algorithms for the Web

NTENT will be participating at The Web Conference in San Francisco, CA (May 13-17, 2019) as a Silver Sponsor. Our CTO Dr. Ricardo Baeza-Yates will be co-chairing the conference, as well as presenting a workshop titled, “9th Temporal Web Analytics Workshop" and a 3-Hour tutorial "Designing Equitable Algorithms for the Web".

The Temporal Web Workshop, beginning on Monday May13th, will occur over two days and cover sessions with multiple topics on Web Preservation, Search & Analytics, and Social Behavior. Co-chairs of the event include Marc Spaniol of the Université de Caen and Julien Masanès of the Internet Memory Research, both in France. Dr. Baeza-Yates will also act as a moderator on a special panel on Web Preservation. Emphasis will be given to temporal data analysis along the time dimension for web data that has been collected over extended time periods. This presents a major challenge due to the sheer size of the data exposed and the ability to make sense of this data in a useful way. The workshop will address the necessity of web scale data analytics to develop infrastructures and extended analytical tools to assist with understanding and implementation.

The Designing Equitable Algorithms for the Web tutorial, presented by Ricardo Baeza-Yates and Sharad Goel, will take place on May 13th from 9:00 to 12:30. The tutorial will cover how machine learning algorithms increasingly affect both our online and offline experiences. Researchers and policymakers, however, have rightfully raised concerns that these systems might inadvertently exacerbate societal biases. We provide an introduction to fair machine learning, beginning with a general overview of algorithmic fairness, and then discussing these issues specifically in the context of the Web.
