An Exclusive Movie Preview!
Pre-register when session enrollment opens for a private, limited attendee screening of the documentary film Coded Bias directed by Shalini Kantayya! Coded Bias reveals the groundbreaking research of MIT researcher and vGHC featured speaker Joy Buolamwini, proving that facial recognition algorithms have the power to disseminate racial bias at scale. In June 2020, IBM, Amazon, and Microsoft said they would pause the sale of facial recognition to police. In a pivotal moment for racial equality, and a decisive moment for how big tech will yield power, Coded Bias is a trailblazing film for public understanding and engagement with the algorithms that impact us all. We will screen Coded Bias on Wednesday, September 30 at 4:30 p.m. PT.
