SABIO – SociAl BIas Observatory

Autumn 2020 – Summer 2021

The SociAl BIas Observatory (SABIO) project is aimed at investigating bias in the digital collections of the members of the Dutch Digital Heritage Network. In this project, we investigate how collection managers and curators create and add metadata to collection objects, and how bias in these metadata can be detected using statistical models. We aim to create a knowledge graph on top of existing collection databases that makes prejudices and imbalances in the data explicit such that they can be addressed, as well as taken into account by users of the data.

This project is a collaboration with National Library of the Netherlands, Netherlans Institute for Sound and Vision, Nationaal Museum van Wereldculturen, and Centrum voor Wiskunde en Informatica.
