I’m looking forward to participating in two CHI workshops. The first workshop is Realizing AI in Healthcare in which I will present my paper Algorithmic Patient Matching in Peer Support Systems for Hospital Inpatients:
Peer support in inpatient portal systems can help patients to manage their hospital experiences, namely through social modeling of similar patients’ experiences. In this position paper, I will begin by providing a theoretical foundation of social modeling and peer matching. Then I will present matching strategies for algorithmic tools to match patients by their similarities, as well as the challenges and consequences that will surface when such a system is deployed in the wild. These technosocial complexities show that algorithmic matching in this context is non-trivial. Finally, based on the evidence and theories known thus far, I will present two recommendations on how to algorithmically match patient that will support social modeling, align with human cognition, and reduce the risk of injustices in clinical settings.
Watch the video presentation below:
The second workshop is Artificially Intelligent Technology for the Margins, in which I submitted a position paper titled Transformative-fair AI for Addressing the Societal Origins of Marginalization:
This paper introduced the Transformative-fair framework for understanding the scope of impact of algorithmic tools for supporting marginalized communities. In contrast to Reformative-fair, algorithmic tools that meet Transformative-fair criteria seek to counter the societal origin of marginalization itself. More specifically, by amplifying the community assets (e.g., skills and knowledge in the community) and aspirations, strengthening social relationships, and supporting internally driven community efforts.
I’m looking forward to hearing new ideas from the community.
