The Faculty Council LGBTQ+ Committee, in collaboration with the council’s CREE (Committee on Racial and Ethnic Equity) and Women’s committees, are hosting a virtual screening of acclaimed documentary “Coded Bias.”
The April 16 event features a 6 p.m. screening of the film via a virtual watch page followed by a 7:30 p.m. panel discussion and Q&A via Zoom. Panelists are:
- Shalini Kantayya, filmmaker
- Debbie Carter, M.D., associate professor, Department of Psychiatry, CU Anschutz
- Kandrea Wade, Ph.D. student, Information Science, CU Boulder
- Morgan Klaus Scheuerman, Ph.D. student, Information Science, CU Boulder
“Coded Bias” explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini´s startling discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces and women accurately, and her journey to push for the first legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that affect everyone.
The free event is open to all, but space is limited. Register here.
