    Hi all,

    I am sending along a call for papers on behalf of Dr. Jason Kuruzovich. There is a mini-track at The Hawaii International Conference on System Sciences on AI and Digital Discrimination that may be of interest to HR division members.

    HICSS Mini-track on AI and Digital Discrimination

    Sara Moussawi, Xuefei (Nancy) Deng, and I (Jason Kuruzovich) are organizing a mini-track titled "AI and Digital Discrimination" in the special track of "Information Technology, Social Justice, and Marginalized Contexts" in HICSS 2024 (https://hicss.hawaii.edu/tracks-57/information-technology-social-justice-and-marginalized-contexts/)

    A technology is biased if it unfairly or systematically discriminates against certain individuals by denying them an opportunity or assigning them a different and undesirable outcome. As we delegate more and more decision-making tasks to computer autonomous systems and algorithms, such as using artificial intelligence for employee hiring and loan approval, digital discrimination is becoming a serious problem. This mini-track welcomes papers addressing digital discrimination in all formats including empirical studies, design research, theoretical framework, and case studies etc.  from scholars across disciplines, such as information systems, computer science, library science, sociology, and law, etc. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

    ·   AI-based Assistants: Opportunities and Threats

    ·   AI Explainability and Digital Discrimination

    ·   AI Systems Design and Digital Discrimination

    ·   AI Use Experience of Disadvantaged / Marginalized Groups
