LiU Tema’s DATA LAB November workshop on Synthetic Data
Welcome to LiU Tema’s DATA LAB November workshop on Synthetic Data, in collaboration with the Operationalising Ethics for AIproject. The workshop will take place on Nov. 29, 09:00-12:00 CET at Linköping University (Campus Valla, TEM21. Fika break will be included. Online participation may be arranged.
During the workshop we will discuss the risks, possibilities and promises of synthetic data across different application areas. Given the increasingly complicated regulatory environment around data use and AI systems, what kinds of risks are addressed, created or made possible through synthetic data? Where there is much excitement about synthetic data in the machine learning community, there is also apprehension and caution. There is a proliferation of synthetic data generation libraries and pipelines becoming available to the technical community. These promise to get beyond the triple challenges of privacy, bias, and data scarcity, but warrant a critical discussion about how and to what extent these challenges are being addressed. We will discuss what the state of the art in synthetic data currently is, and what critical, legal, and ethical issues synthetic data techniques may encounter.
Please let us know if you would like to join by Monday, Nov. 20.
Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
