Event Details

UPDATE: Please note that we've moved this event to DC 1302 in order to make more tickets available.

In the 2018 Hagey Lecture Student Colloquium, University of Waterloo Research Professor Maura Grossman will lead a conversation with Cathy O'Neil about the ethical challenges of AI and machine learning. Aimed at students, the talk will explore O'Neil's career, her latest book, and what you—future programmers and data scientists—can do to minimize ethical problems connected to software.

The colloquium is a student-focused follow-up to the 2018 Hagey Lecture, Weapons of Math Destruction, based on O'Neil's book of the same title.

This event is organized by the Hagey Lectures Committee, the David R. Cheriton School of Computer Science, and the Department of Statistics and Actuarial Science.

Hagey Lectures

Waterloo's premier invitational public lecture series since 1970, the Hagey Lectures – named after the university's first president – are co-sponsored by the Faculty Association and the University of Waterloo. The annual lectures are intended to challenge, stimulate and enrich not only the faculty, staff and students of the University, but all members of this community.
