Dr. Rauch’s sabbatical report references research activities including 
•    a 2.5 months residency program at SOMA Mexico City, where she worked under the pseudonym of ‘Mesas Collective’;
•    a fellowship with ‘The Anthropocene Curriculum’ at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, in Berlin resulting in a series of workshops and seminars, and international conference presentations in Paris, France, Chicago and Los Angeles;
•    and most importantly Rauch pursued a variety of activities that re-connected her with her studio practice. Rauch deliberately embraced a practice driven by material investigation and considerations of the Anthropocene and questioning the Technosphere.

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?
