The first FATE Winter School, organized by the Cyprus Center for Algorithmic Transparency (CyCAT) provided a forum for both students as well as senior researchers to examine the complex topic of Fairness, Accountability, Transparency and Ethics (FATE). Through a program that included two invited keynotes, as well as sessions led by CyCAT partners across Europe and Israel, participants were exposed to a range of approaches on FATE, in a holistic manner. During the Winter School, the team also organized a hands-on activity to evaluate a tool-based intervention where participants interacted with eight prototypes of bias-aware search engines. Finally, participants were invited to join one of four collaborative projects coordinated by CyCAT, thus furthering common understanding and interdisciplinary collaboration on this emerging topic.
