AI Colloquium in June

The AI Colloquium, organized by the Lamarr Institute, the Research Center Trustworthy Data Science and Security (RC Trust) and the Center for Data Science & Simulation at TU Dortmund University (DoDas), provides a platform for leading researchers to present groundbreaking work in the field of Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence. These 90-minute sessions, which usually take place on Thursdays at 10 a.m. c.t., unlike other colloquia, focus on interactive dialog and international collaboration and include one-hour lectures and 30-minute Q&A sessions. The colloquium will be held mainly in English. The hybrid format of the colloquium ensures that all interested parties can participate in person in the lecture hall at Fraunhofer Straße 25 in Dortmund or online via our Lamarr YouTube channel. On June 6th, the AI Colloquium welcomes Prof. Dr. Bilal Zafar as its next speaker with a keynote entitled “On early detection of hallucinations in factual question answering”.

Bilal Zafar

Bilal Zafar is a professor of Computer Science at Ruhr University Bochum (RUB) and the RC Trust. His research addresses challenges that arise when AI/ML models interact with human users, therefore aiming at making models more fair, explainable and robust. Before joining RUB, he was a Senior Scientist at Amazon Web Services, where he was building products to support the trustworthy use of AI. His work has received an Otto Hahn Medal from the Max Planck Society in 2021, a nomination for CNIL-INRIA Privacy Award’18, a Best Paper Honorable Mention Award at WWW’17, a Notable Paper Award at NeurIPS’16 Symposium on ML and the Law, and a Best Paper Award at COSN’15.
