worked until mid-2014 and at the Koobi Fora Field School in Kenya which was jointly run by GWU AMNH then did a second investigation which uncovered allegations that Richmond had sexually harassed students at the field school Richmond resigned from the field school but continued to work at the museum After Richmond refused to resign the museum last December hired an outside firm T&M Protection Resources in New York City to conduct a third investigation The museum also asked Richmond to work offsite starting in January according to the research assistant The results of this third investigation which concluded when Richmond resigned this week have not been released But Canty said the firm also helped the museum revise its sexual harassment policies and provide training for all employees students and volunteers The research assistant who remains employed by the museum told Science the day after the resignation that she was “just glad it’s over and that justice prevailed The museum did the right thing” Other museum employees echoed that sentiment saying that the human origins program was without direction during the stressful investigations The museum plans to eventually hire a new curator of human origins Although Richmond co-authored several high-profile papers last year and says he plans to continue publishing researchers are fiercely divided over whether others should share authorship with him Last April at the annual meeting of the American Association of Physical Anthropologists in Atlanta Clancy and others argued that researchers should stop all collaboration including joint publication with colleagues under investigation for sexual harassment or discrimination or urge such colleagues to withdraw from joint papers At least one young researcher mentored by Richmond says a journal editor reported recently that some researchers refused to review papers with Richmond’s name on them But removing Richmond from publications after the work was done would be “plagiarism” says paleoanthropologist David Strait of Washington University in St Louis in Missouri a long-time collaborator with Richmond “I can’t agree with removing someone from authorship on a paper that began in good faith before allegations of misconduct became known” There are no professional standards on how to proceed notes paleoanthropologist Leslie Aiello of the Wenner-Gren Foundation for Anthropological Research in New York City but she and journal editors agree that the priority should be to avoid penalizing junior scientists who need to publish their research The whole affair leaves Wood who once mentored Richmond and later encouraged investigation of his actions with an “overwhelming sense of sadness and some hope” He regrets the harm done to women in science and hopes the episode “will mark a watershed in all of our efforts to make the scientific workplace welcoming to all” *Update 6 December 3:17 pm: This story has been updated to include additional comment and information By: Bloomberg | Published: December 16 2017 10:04 am “Google is investigating the matter” Gina Scigliano a company spokeswoman said Related News Sexual harassment accusations have hit another corner of the tech industry with allegations involving prominent artificial intelligence researchers including one at Google a leader in the field Data scientist Kristian Lum wrote in a blog this week that a man she called “S” grabbed her inappropriately at an industry conference in 2010 and said he took advantage of another woman she didn’t identify on separate occasions Two people who were told about the conduct from two alleged victims told Bloomberg the man is Steven Scott a senior researcher at Google Lum also wrote that a well-respected academic touched her inappropriately on the leg at the same conference and later sent her innuendo-laced messages The man was later identified as Bradley Carlin an expert in biostatistics by people familiar with the alleged conduct The allegations were widely discussed on social media drawing supportive comments and similar stories from researchers in academia and leading tech companies including Alphabet Inc’s Google and Microsoft Corp Eric Horvitz a Microsoft research director called Lum’s post a “powerful and important report” “I’d love to tell my side of the story but I’m afraid you’ll need to get it from [email protected]” Scott wrote in an email referring to Google’s public relations department “Google is investigating the matter” Gina Scigliano a company spokeswoman said Scott has been suspended from Google as of Friday according to a person familiar with the matter Carlin a professor at the University of Minnesota referred questions to the school which said it is aware of the accusations but declined to comment further The researchers involved are experts in Bayesian statistics which underpins a powerful type of AI known as machine learning The accusations have surfaced during a growing debate over the lack of diversity among machine learning researchers and whether computer scientists are paying enough attention to bias – including gender and racial bias – in the data sets they are using to train AI systems The allegations came to light after the recent conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS) in Long Beach California Some attendees complained that aspects of some parties held during the conference were inappropriate and potentially offensive to women They also condemned a joke about sexual harassment made by Carlin a member of an amateur band that performed at the NIPS closing night party Carlin the band’s keyboardist joked about the sexual misconduct allegations that forced the resignation of US Senator Al Franken After several attendees complained on Twitter that making light of sexual harassment was inappropriate Carlin apologized on the band’s Facebook page Lum who was not at the conference learned of the incident and then wrote in the blog that she was “unsurprised to learn that a person involved in making the troubling comments is a well-respected academic who is widely known to behave inappropriately at conferences” Without naming Carlin directly Lum said the academic had touched her inappropriately on the leg during an informal presentation she gave at a Bayesian mathematics conference in 2010 He also commented on her dress saying it “was too sexy” for such an academic talk Over the ensuing years she wrote the person sent her several innuendo-laced or inappropriate private Facebook messages including messages in which he discussed watching pornography “I would like to defend myself against her accusations but the matter has already been referred to my university’s EEO team which I’m told will be conducting a full investigation into the matter” Carlin wrote in an email to Bloomberg referring to the University of Minnesota’s Equal Employment Opportunity department “So I’ve been instructed not to say anything more publicly pending the results of that investigation” Evan Lapiska a spokesman for the university said the school is “aware of public accusations” involving Carlin but declined to comment further citing privacy protections Lum declined to comment In her post she detailed further incidents of alleged harassment at the same 2010 conference The “worst offender” she wrote was a researcher that she only identifies as “S” At the end of the conference while she was swimming with other researchers the person grabbed Lum without her consent and put “his hands on my torso hips and thighs” according to the post Other female mathematicians spoke similarly to Lum about S Lum added And she wrote that he had “taken advantage of a junior person” under the influence of alcohol She said that several years later at another conference during a reception hosted by Google she overheard the same person bragging to friends about “banging smokin’ hot chicks” When Lum gave him a castigating stare he told Lum she was only jealous he hadn’t been talking about her according to the blog “I knew it would be even more difficult to get people to find S’s behavior problematic since he is employed by a large tech company” she wrote The person in Lum’s post is Scott a director of statistics research at Google according to two people familiar with the situation Katherine Heller an assistant professor at Duke University recognized Scott in Lum’s description and told Bloomberg that he had acted inappropriately with a former student of hers Heller also said that several other female researchers had reached out to her with similar stories about other men in the field after Lum’s blog post was published “There really is just a lot of sexual harassment of women in Bayesian statistics and machine learning” Heller said Another person in the field said she had witnessed Scott’s actions with women in the past but asked not to be identified given the sensitivity of the topic “Thank you for having the courage to speak out about this terrible behavior” Jeff Dean head of Google’s Brain AI unit tweeted to Lum “This has no place in science math statistics computing or anywhere else” Dean was commenting generally and he didn’t respond to an email asking about Scott Lum said that after she saw in October that “S” had been nominated as a candidate for the board of the International Society for Bayesian Analysis (ISBA) she brought concerns about his behavior to the organization’s president and he was removed from the ballot Scott who has been at Google since 2008 was a candidate for the board and is no longer on the ballot according to ISBA’s website and one person with knowledge of the organization who spoke to Bloomberg Kerrie Mengersen ISBA’s president did not respond to questions about Scott But she said in an email that she and ISBA’s executive committee supported Lum coming forward with her account “The Executive Committee takes any report of inappropriate behavior very seriously” she said “We have a great Society and a proud record of including women as members and as leaders However like many societies we have recognized that we need to do more” Mengersen said the organization was in the process of establishing protocols for appropriate behavior and support mechanisms for members who have been harassed For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Reuters | Los Angeles | Published: October 6 2010 10:50 am Related News MTV is revamping
