The recently released documentary about bias in Artificial Intelligence, is available to the BMC community to stream through April  7th.  Shalini Kantayya’s “Coded Bias” effectively brings to light a modern civil rights issue that can be proven with data—the bias within facial recognition programs, particularly against those who are not like the white men who originally formed such technology.

We are also hosting a Teach-In/discussion of CODED BIAS and related issues Wednesday, April 7th at 4 PM. Facilitated by Isaac Sandberg (math), Sorelle Friedler (CS at Haverford), Deepak Kumar (CS), Marc Schulz (Data Science). These events are Co-sponsored by the Data Science, Psychology, Math, CS departments and President’s Office at Bryn Mawr and CS at Haverford.
