Algorithms used for ranking publications and evaluating researchers on the basis of their citations are far from fair. The Velux Foundation has awarded associate professor, Roberta Sinatra, the Young Investigator grant to pursue her ambition of creating the foundation for better algorithms and metrics.

Like people, algorithms have to learn - and they learn from data. However, often data is skewed, which can lead to bias and discrimination against certain groups, says Barbara Plank, researcher in Natural Language Processing at ITU.

Algorithms can help us identify false stories, but letting technology be the judge of what is true and false is not without its problems, says Leon Derczynski, a researcher at ITU specializing in automatic detection of fake news and misinformation.

Despite big advances in machine learning, making computers understand language is still a big challenge. Daniel Varab and his two classmates from Software Development trained a computer program to detect contradictions in texts – a technology that might eventually help us keep track of statements made by politicians and contradictions in the law.

Computers have already crushed humans at chess, Go and poker. Now, researchers at the IT University of Copenhagen are training an algorithm to beat the best human players in the sci-fi computer game StarCraft. If the project succeeds, it will be another quantum leap forward for artificial intelligence (AI).

The value of star footballers is a subject intensely debated among football fans, but big data might become the go-to method for determining the price tags of the stars. Researchers from the IT University in Copenhagen and University of Liechtenstein have developed an algorithm that calculates the value of players based on vast amounts of data.
