ReproducibiliTea 23 May 2-3 pm CET: Scientific Red Teams  

Leo Tiokhin, from Eindhoven University of Technology will discuss with us the concept of Red Teams and how they can be used in research. 

Scientific Red Teams

Red teams are groups of individuals who play the role of an adversary – attacking a system and revealing its weaknesses, with the ultimate goal of improving system functioning. In the last two years, our group has attempted to incorporate the concept of red teaming into scientific practice. We have conducted a range of projects in which diverse teams of independent scientists have received financial compensation to criticize scientific research. In this session, I will summarize our experiences implementing red teams in science and outline directions for future development. My goal is to stimulate a discussion about the costs and benefits of red teams, and the potential role of red teams in the future of scientific practice.

Like two weeks ago, we will offer a hybrid session again. If you want to meet in person, please stop by the Bouman building (Room B.128). Others are welcome to join via Google Meet (link below).
