SABIO: The SociAl BIas Observatory

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.

DHLab involvement: Marieke van Erp is the principal investigator on this project, Valentin Vogelmann is involved as a researcher.

Funded by the Dutch Digital Heritage Network.
