Coded Bias

One day media researcher Joy Buolamwini of MIT finds out that facial recognition programs have difficulty in recognizing her dark face. This leads to further research on racial identity and artificial intelligence and quickly it turns out that consciously or not a lot of algorithms have a bias against people with different skin colors. In this film we follow Joy during her research while she joins forces with other women who also try to improve civil rights in algorithms.

Introduction and discussion by Alessandro Bozzon. Alessandro Bozzon is Professor and Chair of Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence with the Department of Design Engineering of the Faculty of Industrial Design Engineering (IDE). His work focuses on Crowd Computing, which advocates for the adoption of human intelligence at scale to improve the performance of artificial intelligence systems in terms of accuracy and adherence to people’s values, goals and needs.
