Tanner Lectures on Human Values: Excavating “Ground Truth” in AI: Epistemologies and Politics in Training Data

Alumni House
  • Kate Crawford, Miegunyah Distinguished Visiting Fellow, University of Melbourne
  • Trevor Paglen
  • Marion Fourcade, Professor, UC Berkeley, Department of Sociology
  • Angjoo Kanazawa, Assistant Professor, UC Berkeley, Department of EECS
The last decade has seen a dramatic capture of digital material for machine learning production. This data is the basis for sense-making in AI, not as classical representations of the world with individual meaning, but as mass collections: ground truth for machine abstractions and operations. OpenAI’s GPT-3 language model is trained on a corpus of 1 billion words, ImageNet contains over 14...

Oriented Atomic and Molecular Assembly on Two-Dimensional Crystals for Hybrid van der Waals Heterostructures: Nano Webinar Series

Zoom Session
  • Prof. Kwanpyo Kim (김관표 교수), Yonsei University, Physics
This seminar meeting will be done over zoom at this link: https://berkeley.zoom.us/j/91273049368?pwd=RFBMVzNtR3RDSjJRQ1F2TTdPanc5dz09 The atomic and molecular assembly processes on the surface of two-dimensional (2D) layered crystals have gained significant research interest for fabrication of well-ordered nanostructures and vertical heterostructures based on 2D crystals. The structure and...
