    Aditya Kadam

    Hello everyone I am Aditya Kadam a 3rd Year CS Undergrad at IIIT Hyderabad, India
    I am currently working as a Student Researcher at Precog Lab.
    My work mostly revolves around Hatespeech Detection and Explainable Fake News detection on Online Social Media which has led to me choosing ‘Tutorials for working with Interpretable and Explainable AI with LIT’ as it aligns with my interests and have some prior experience about.

    Planning on writing a proposal for the same soon.

    Hi. my name is Cholmin Kang. I recently received MS in Culture Technology from Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) and BS in Computer Science and Engineering from Sung Kyun Kwan University (SKKU).
    I am interested in "Benchmark detectives: Data & Model Cards” project.

    Do I have to include starter tasks in proposals? (e.g., make model cards / dataset cards and include?)

    Hi everyone! It's great to see all the interest in our projects. A small administrative ask: when sharing your proposals, would you please do two things:

    (1) include your first/last name (or first initial+last name) in the file name, something like "(Jenny Hamer) GSoC Fair Data Reweighting Proposal"
    (2) include your GitHub username/handle in the proposal doc, especially if you submitted starter tasks.

    Greetings, all! Apologies for my extended silence. But I'm here today to let those that have expressed interest in the "Benchmark Detectives: Data & Model Cards" project know that we have created a README with a suggested format for your proposal. You can find the README at: https://github.com/PAIR-code/datacardsplaybook/tree/main/benchmarkdetectives

    In addition, we won't be creating any additional starter tasks. Some of you expressed interest in other aspects of this project, such as the Playbook. But after deliberating, we felt that it's crucial to make a Data and/or Model Card first in order to develop the foundational knowledge needed for working on other aspects of this project. But what you could do instead is: in your proposal, after having completed the starter task, you could speak on your aspirations of working on other aspects of the project.

    Hello! My name is Muhammad King Yakub
    I am interested in the model-remediation (Active Sampling for Min-Max Fairness) project.
    Hi everyone,
    I am Anjishnu. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science last year and have previously participated in the 2020 edition of Google Summer of Code with the mlpack organization. I will be starting as a PhD student this Fall, where my focus of research would be fairness, interpretability and explainability for language models. I am interested in participating for the project on LIT Tutorials. I have submitted a draft proposal for this project on the Summer of Code portal today.
    @RyanMullins : I have sent you the draft via email as well, as mentioned on the Github thread for the starter task. If possible, let me know any feedback or comments.

    Hello @pranjal-awasthi @jennyhamer, I just sent you an email with my updated proposal for the Active Sampling for ML Fairness project, considering the suggestions provided by Jenny. Please let me know what other changes I could add to the proposal, I would appreciate any additional feedback. Thanks!

    Hello all: thank you for your efforts on submitting starter tasks and working on your proposals.

    For those of you interested in the Active Sampling for ML Fairness and Fair Data Reweighting projects, I have the following advice (also generally applicable):

    • read the project descriptions in the project ideas doc:
    • look over the starter tasks (if you haven't attempted them, please do!)
    • for projects involving demos/tutorials/docs/open-source Colabs: check out the work that's already been open-sourced within TensorFlow (e.g. https://www.tensorflow.org/responsible_ai/model_remediation)
      • this may offer useful context for types of contributions you could produce.
    • outline a clear plan of action, and remember that timelines may naturally fluctuate (some things will go more quickly or slowly than you expect)
    • peer-review: ask a friend, schoolmate, or colleague to look over your proposal! You could even swap proposals to review with somebody interested in a different project here.
    • trust your intuition!
    In case you haven't taken a look at these already, please utilize these official resources:

    Rachel Kim

    Hi everyone!

    I'm Rachel, and I am currently a second-year undergraduate student at the University of Toronto studying Computer Science and Math. I'm interested in the "Benchmark LIT for fairness and equity" project. Although I have some experience with data visualization and machine learning, I'm still fairly new to the topic, so for my proposal, I'm currently working on familiarizing myself with LIT and the work that RAI-HCT does, as well as coming up with some ideas for metrics / datasets that could help benchmark LIT. I was wondering if there were already some guidelines for good metrics / datasets that could potentially be used, or if this was still an open-ended question that we should do some research on and try to answer (at least partially) in our proposals.

    Thank you so much for your time, and I look forward to hopefully working on this project over the summer. :))

    Dear Sir/Mam,I have been researching and writing the proposal for Benchmark KYD for the last few days. After a lot of research I finalised the proposal, I saw that the project has been removed from the ideas list. Can you please guide me what exactly I need to do now? I did not expect such unprofessional behaviour from one of the children organisation of Google. @bhaktipriya @teshgoogle @pranjal-awasthi

    Hello everyone !
    I'm Mustafa , and I'm currently working on my bachelor on detecting and mitigating bias in AI, so naturally I was interested in the Fair Data Reweighting project but I came across this a bit late since the deadline for submissions is 2 days from now. So, can I still work on the starter tasks provided or should I just submit my proposal?

    I'm creating a datacard for a dataset. Is it necessary to add all the details present in the datacard template? For Eg: My dataset is a traffic sign detection dataset and it contains images of different traffic signs to recognize them. It does not have any sensitive human data. so should I remove those fields or should I add NA under them? @mpushkarna @andrewzaldivar

    Hi! I'm Taylor, an undergraduate studying computer science and psychology. Broadly, I care about positively shaping and developing our human interactions with technology in a mindful, more accessible way through pedagogy. Because of that, I am interested in the Data Cards Playbook project to bring people together to understand AI literacy, transparency, and ethics. While I have some experience in front end and research, I would like to further learn the AI field and ways to help contribute/shape the space!

    I submitted my proposal (some of it is left a bit open-ended) Always open to feedback! Thank you for your consideration and for taking the time to look through our proposal(s)!
