    Speaker: Patrick Fowler,

    Talk Title: Equity in Data-Driven Policies

    Series: USC Center for Artificial Intelligence in Society (CAIS) Seminar Series

    Abstract: Dr. Fowler will present work investigating group fairness in algorithmic decision-making. The team uses administrative records on homeless service delivery to demonstrate inherent tradeoffs in fairness that depend on the operationalization of equity. The findings inform data-driven policy-making in homelessness and social services broadly.

    Biography: Dr. Patrick Fowler's research centers on homelessness prevention and the negative consequences of homelessness on youth, families, and communities. His recent research focuses on homelessness among youth aging out of foster care and child maltreatment prevention among families experiencing homelessness.

    Using linked administrative data, Dr. Fowler designs and tests big data applications to improve the fairness and efficiency of homelessness services delivery. He employs a complex systems approach to create developmentally appropriate and culturally tailored responses to homelessness.
