I am excited to launch the Simons Foundation’s Collaboration on the Theory of Algorithmic Fairness, funded by the Simons Foundation. This is a large-scale multi-institutional effort to accelerate the (already powerful) impact of TOC on the emerging area of algorithmic fairness. Beyond the ambitious research goals of this project (which we will discuss in future posts), we hope it will play an important role in community building and bridge building to other fields of research. In addition to launching this blog and our site, we are also launching a research seminar that will feature a diverse set of talks. We are very exited to have Annette Zimmermann as our inaugural speaker (a week from today).
If you want to join our seminar, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will add you to our email list (which we will be careful not to overuse).
