Created primarily in acrylic on canvas and board, the series explores in depth the effects of colour, formal composition and materiality. Though abstract in nature, Steele's paintings are often partially representative of actual scenes or contain visual elements recollected from first encounters.

April Steele is an emerging visual artist and curator from Peterborough, and a graduate of the Ontario College of Art & Design's drawing and painting program. She has also lived and studied in Florence and Venice, Italy, where she specialized in fine art and art history, and has exhibited her work internationally.

Dr. Toon Calders (University of Antwerp) presents Machine Learning: Bias In, Bias Out. Artificial intelligence is more and more responsible for decisions that have a huge impact on our lives. But predictions made using data mining and algorithms can affect population subgroups differently. Academic researchers and journalists have shown that decisions taken by predictive algorithms sometimes lead to biased outcomes, reproducing inequalities already present in society. Is it possible to make a fairness-aware data mining process? Are algorithms biased because people are too? Or is it how machine learning works at the most fundamental level?
