Coded Bias

1hr 30mins   |   Directed by Shalini Kantayya  |  Featuring Joy Buolamwini, Silkie Carlo, Jenny Jones

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence (AI) 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.  Streaming ticket on sale soon!
