Call for participation: Virtual paper development workshops for papers on work in the age of intelligent machines

Our main activity over the past few years has been organizing workshops and an annual conference, but both are on hold due to the ongoing COVID crises. Indeed, with everything that’s going on, research may currently be lower-priority or even on pause for many people. Yet, as a research coordination network, we’d like to provide a small means of social support that may spur you on even in these challenging times. To this end, we are organizing a series of mini paper-development workshops, to be held virtually throughout the summer and perhaps beyond.

CSCW Workshop: Better supporting workers in ML workplaces

This workshop is aimed at bringing together a multidisciplinary group to discuss Machine Learning and its application in the workplace as a practical, everyday work matter. It’s our hope this is a step toward helping us design better technology and user experiences to support the accomplishment of that work, while paying attention to workplace context. Despite advancement and investment in ML business applications, understanding workers in these work contexts have received little attention.

Situating “explainability”: Making sense of data-driven assemblages in organizational context

Type: Presentation
Author: Christine T. Wolf
Year of Publishing: 2019
Keywords:

The rise of data-driven technologies in recent years has sparked renewed attention to questions of technological sensemaking and in particular the explainability or interpretability of such systems (a growing technical subfield commonly called “Explainable AI” or “XAI”). These approaches tend to focus on the technology itself (often at the level of model or predictive output) and fail to consider the broader context of use and the situated nature of technological sensemaking.
