15 March, 2018 - Algorithms and Fairness: What are the limits of predictive algorithms in public policy?

Time: 13:30:00 - 17:00:00

Algorithms are increasingly used to make decisions affecting our lives, but can we ensure machine-generated decisions are fair? Algorithms have long been used in the private sector to make marketing or finance decisions. As large-scale data becomes available in the public sector, these techniques are increasingly being deployed in areas as diverse as education, criminal justice or health. If these algorithms are based on data which misrepresents specific groups of people, then their use could widen social inequalities or breach equality laws. We have organised a workshop, funded by UCL Grand Challenges, to bring interested parties together, within and beyond UCL, to develop an interdisciplinary research agenda. The workshop will be a combination of invited talks and group discussion, appropriate for academics, policy makers and doctoral students.

1 May, 2018 - How can I facilitate meaningful conversations with stakeholders?

Time: 10:00:00 - 11:30:00

At the core of Public Engagement (PE) and Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) is conversation. We believe that research should include public and patient voices, and that this inclusion leads to better outcomes for all. Moving from that belief to actually facilitating conversations can be quite a leap, particularly for those without training or experience. In this session, we will interrogate different ways of facilitating meaningful conversations with public and patient groups, and other key stakeholder groups. We will begin the session with some brief case studies, leading to conversations wherein all attending can discuss and experiment with facilitation techniques. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.

13 June, 2018 - How can I share the impact of public engagement / involvement on both my research and its broader stakeholders in a meaningful way?

Time: 14:00:00 - 15:30:00

What happens when a Public Engagement (PE) or Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) project finishes? Funders and research institutions increasingly expect project leaders to maintain future relationships with public and patient groups. Often funders will expect you to maintain those relationships and, regardless, responsible PE or PPI should plan for what happens at the end. Impact - or the change your work can make - is one way to consider the legacy of your public engagement or patient and public involvement work. This is part of a series of events to support those across the UCL School of Life and Medical Sciences (SLMS) working in Public Engagement and Patient and Public Involvement. These take place regularly, focussing on different topics each time.
