Coded Bias Discussion: September 7th 2022 7:00pm-8:00pm EST

The movie "Coded Bias", explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all .

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against? When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that many facial recognition technologies do not accurately detect darker-skinned faces or classify the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.

Join us for a discussion of the movie, its topics, and our own experiences on Wednesday, Sept 7, at 7pm.  A link to the movie will be provided in advance so attendees can watch the movie, on their own time, prior to the discussion. Even if you can't make the discussion, sign up to watch the movie.
