Description Clearbox AI Control Room has a feature to generate synthetic datasets for dataset augmentation. The thesis work is focused in the experimentation of techniques that can help detect bias in the original datasets and mitigate them by augmenting the original dataset using synthetic points. The project will require identifying the types of bias within a dataset and identifying intervention mechanisms to remove the bias using synthetic data generation methods.
Clearbox AI is an innovative SME, incubated in I3P, winner of the National Innovation Award (PNI 2019) in the ICT category and the EU Seal of Excellence awarded by the European Commission. Clearbox AI is developing a unique and innovative technology ("AI Control Room"), which allows to put into production artificial intelligence models that are robust, explainable and monitorable over time.
