DataX and the Center for Information Technology Policy are sponsoring a new reading group on recommender systems (RS) that's meeting biweekly starting March 30, 2021.

The goal of the RS reading group is to gain deeper understanding both of seminal work as well as emerging ideas in the field. Papers will include research on RS algorithm development and evaluation; user-centered design and user studies for RS; fairness, accountability, and explainability in recommendations; and societal impacts of RS.

Meetings will be for one hour to discuss a selected paper. A rotating discussion leader will engage the group in whatever format they feel is best for the paper (e.g., presentation, guided discussion, free form discussion).


Meeting dates are the following:

Tue, Mar 30, 2021, 4:00 pm

Tue, Apr 13, 2021, 4:00 pm

Tue, Apr 27, 2021, 4:00 pm
