Marshini participated in a great panel on applications of artificial intelligence for a College Readiness Program offered by the Office of Special Programs in April. She also worked with the Connecting Contexts Team to deliver a workshop on Keeping Kids Safe Online at our partner school in Chicago in April. More recently in June, Marshini gave a talk on misleading online content such as dark patterns and disguised advertisements at the 17th Annual Center for Competition Policy Conference on Rethinking Consumer Policy held virtually at the University of East Anglia in the United Kingdom. She also presented her work on AdIntuition and automatically disclosing online endorsements at the Federal Trade Commission. All these events were held virtually!

AIR lab members, Shriya Bansal (Co-President/Event Director), Lucy Li (Events Lead), and Neha Lingareddy (Events Flex Chair) who help run CompileHer organized a hackathon online on Feb 6/7 for middle school girls. The theme was <interstell/Her> and creating awareness around space and the solar system. Adam Shaw and Marshini were judges for the competition and were impressed by the range of system designs the participants prototyped in a short amount of time! If you’re interested in helping with CompileHer, consider reaching out to these AIR lab members! Read more about the event here.
