is a first year PhD student working on biases and imbalances in computer vision datasets and algorithms, jointly supervised by Dr Suzanne Little at Dublin City University and Dr Susan Leavy at University College Dublin, Ireland.
His research work focuses on auditing various social biases such as gender bias, racial bias and stereotypical bias and imbalances present in popular computer vision dataset and pre trained models.
Abhishek will be working with us on primarily on the G-app project to measure gaps in representation, participation and influence of Women in International Assemblies & multilateral fora optimizing the novel algorithm so that it truly captures the gender dimensions of international conferences through a blend of Natural Language Processing and Topic Modelling. He will be liaison for another critical component of the G-app project with Professor Susan Leavy of University College Dublin (UCD) to set up the long term research infrastructure at UCD for the longitudinal research component of the G-app.
Abhishek will also be technology liaison with Women at the Table’s new Tech We Need project as we finish the sociological portion of our research on the needs of women and girls in informal settlements where women and girls will articulate their own innovations and solutions. Abhishek will then work with Women at the Table and the <A+> Alliance to bring forward the methodology and the technology when we enter into the phase two of the project.
