Kevin Kuck, a George Mason University mechanical engineering senior, recently presented a paper on generative artificial intelligence (AI) bias at an international conference in Monterrey, Mexico. The paper was an off-shoot of work that Kuck completed for A Seat at the Table, a class examining diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues in engineering.

A “Shark-Tank style pitch competition” closed out the third iteration of Christopher Vo's Unmanned Aerial Systems Prototyping course. Congratulations to all who participated!

The masterclass, hosted by the Mason Innovation Exchange (MIX), is an eight-week program that meets every Thursday evening throughout October and November. Out of 300 applicants, only 30 students are selected to participate. They represent a wide range of degree programs and education levels, from first-semester freshmen in the Global Affairs Program to graduating PhDs in mechanical engineering. While the course is noncredit, students earn a microcredential upon completion.

George Mason University's Department of Information Sciences and Technology will offer a new concentration in human-computer interaction (HCI).

Vivian Genaro Motti, associate professor in IST, said, “The concentration gives us a structured way to ensure students have a path to follow and that they can learn the methods and techniques to involve end users in the design of interactive systems and be more familiar with research in the field. Our long-term goal is to have a very large group of HCI faculty and students, with a presence in the major conferences.”

Artificial intelligence systems only produce outcomes as good as the data sets they rely on. Unfortunately, these data sets are often not adequately representative.

Brittany Johnson-Matthews, an assistant professor in the Department of Computer Science at George Mason University College of Engineering and Computing, recently received a $750,000 grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) for "Engaging Marginalized Groups to Improve Technological Equity,” which looks at the root causes of why such biases are embedded in technical products and will offer a toolkit to aid those designing these systems.

John Kerry: COP28 Health Day Opening Session 12/04/2023

John Kerry cited a new study by George Mason's Lucas Henneman and colleagues at the University of Texas at Austin and Harvard at the COP28 Health Day opening session: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XCE7nSoGyYs

The study finds exposure to fine particulate air pollutants from coal-fired power plants (coal PM2.5) is associated with a risk of mortality more than double that of exposure to PM2.5 from other sources: https://cec.gmu.edu/news/2023-11/new-paper-science-quantifies-mortality-risk-power-plant-pollution

AP News quotes the CEC's Missy Cummings in, "Pentagon’s AI initiatives accelerate hard decisions on lethal autonomous weapons":

“The AI that we’ve got in the Department of Defense right now is heavily leveraged and augments people,” said Missy Cummings, director of George Mason University’s robotics center and a former Navy fighter pilot.” “There’s no AI running around on its own. People are using it to try to understand the fog of war better.”
