LING 575 — Ethics in NLP:

Including Society in Discourse & Design

In this course we will examine the ethical questions involved in doing research on language data, as well as how to include those outside the field in such questions. The course will focus on readings from the NLP field and closely related topics, from science communication to algorithmic fairness and bias in language data.

Students will be responsible for reading and presenting research papers to the class, and a final paper addressing one of the topics raised in the course.

There are no specific course prerequisites.
