There is an emerging consensus that AI researchers and scientists must consider the societal impact of their research. This idea is already taking hold with the introduction of Broader Impact Statements at NeurIPS last year and Paper Checklist Guidelines for authors at this year’s edition. This social will explore the practical challenges that arise for researchers with the introduction of these new requirements. The social will provide the ICLR community with the opportunity to engage with researchers who are thinking about these questions in an informal setting. Come armed with questions, find peers that are facing similar challenges in their research and learn more about resources for anticipating downstream consequences!
There will be two sessions to accommodate researchers from different time zones. Please go to gather.town.
