Film Grain Virtual Cinema

Coded Bias (2020) with filmmaker Shalini Kantayya Zoom Q&A

Sponsored by Women in Tech and Ben Franklin Technology Partners. Co-hosted by the Our Erie podcast.
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 most facial-recognition software does not accurately identify darker-skinned faces and 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. Rent Coded Bias at the link below and watch beforehand at your leisure. Then on Wednesday, April 14th at 6PM EST Join us via Zoom to discuss with filmmaker Shalini Kantayya.
