About the Program

What happens when you put people at the center of computing? The GroupLens Lab has some answers. Learn how systems that understand us as social beings can bring people together to solve large problems -- or to find help for one person at a time. We also will talk about how Human-Centered AI can harness the power of optimization and machine learning to solve big social challenges while protecting human values of fairness, transparency, and helpfulness.
