Night of Discoveries & YAL 2019
The Young Academy Leiden contributed to the Night of Discoveries 2019, which took place on September 21st. At our stand, visitors could test their knowledge and attitudes in the domain of the three themes of our Next444 project: Data & Technology, Sustainability, and Equality, Fairness & Justice.
To create awareness regarding sustainability, we allowed visitors to calculate their ecological footprint. Visitors could also test how gender (un)biased they are via an implicit bias test. Another game asked visitors to distinguish real faces from AI-generated faces.
