Opening reception, January 24, 3-5pm

‘In Series’ is an exhibition that explores the material consequences of repetition. Looking beyond traditional notions of what is unique and mass-produced, it aims to show a range of scales, sizes, mediums, and techniques; the possibilities of repetition affecting change (e.g. transformation, variations, new results); and the subtlety of repetition that can produce something that appears to be the same. It asks what can result from a repeated action, pattern, or process.

‘In Series’ features the work of Victoria Chin, Nina Cho, Dear Human, Zero-Craft Corp. (Mark Dineen and Michael Neville) and Ebitenyefa Baralaye, COUPLE D’IDÉES (Diane Parenteau),Meghan Price (OCADU Fiber faculty member), Watson Soule, Martha Sparrow, James Swain, Cathy Terepocki, Tara Lee Towers (OCADU Fibre graduate), and Jill Usher.

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?
