Workshop: Ethics in natural language processing
Welcome to a workshop on ethics in natural language processing, on 23 January 2024 in Gothenburg. The purpose of the workshop is to discuss several points from the research perspective and later develop as a short online course for students of language technology and related fields, as well as general public interested in this area. This will be the first forum following the discussions at several Swedish language technology ämnesdagar. Topics that have been addressed there are biases in training data, biases in computational models, personal integrity (anonymisation and pseudonymisation of data), intellectual property rights, using language technology tools to detect non-ethical language use, utilising language technology in under-resourced domains and communities (e.g. minority languages), legal aspects of using language technology, philosophical questions and others.
