Best paper award at Discovery Science 2020
We have just been informed that the paper “Evaluating Decision Makers over Selectively Labelled Data: A Causal Modelling Approach”, by Riku Laine, Antti Hyttinen, and myself, was chosen for the Best Paper award at the 23rd International Conference on Discovery Science (DS 2020).
New research-group members
We have a few new members in our research group: Yanhao Wang (PhD, NUS 2020) joins as postdoc, while Ananth Mahadevan and Sachith Pai (MSc, Aalto 2020) join as doctoral students.
Moreover, Francesco Fabbri, doctoral student at UPF Barcelona, has joined us for an internship.
Welcome to all!

Grant by the University of Helsinki
The University of Helsinki has offered a ‘three-year grant’ for the group’s research on machine learning systems.
Grant by Media Industry Research Foundation
Laura Huuskonen’s project “Global Newsosphere: Network of Citations and Sources” has received a grant from the Media Industry Research Foundation of Finland.
Affirmative action policies for university admissions
My blogpost on our recent work on university admissions is up on HUMAINT’s website.

Project funded by the Academy of Finland
The Academy will fund the project ‘Model Management Systems (MLDB)’, following a consortium application with Prof. Aristides Gionis from Aalto University. aka.fi/mldb.
The news is particularly exciting, as I aim to expand my research to machine learning systems – besides topics I’ve usually worked on. To get some idea about the research we plan to do, see this pre-print https://arxiv.org/abs/1904.00079 (currently under submission).
Research visit to JRC Seville
Last week, I visited the EU Commission’s JRC Seville, where Carlos Castillo and I presented our ongoing work on algorithmic fairness.
A preliminary version of our work is posted on arXiv:
