Coded Bias Screening Event

November 14, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 5:00 pm EST

Coded Bias Movie flyer

Exelon STEM Leadership Academy is proud to present a virtual sneak preview screening of the 2020 Sundance film CODED BIAS on 11/14, 1PM EST

About this Event
RSVP to join us for a film on bias in artificial intelligence and the women data scientists and mathematicians fighting to expose its threat to civil liberties and democracy.

CODED BIAS explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s startling discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all.

As a special treat for STEM Academy participants, join us on Zoom after the movie for an exclusive discussion with filmmaker Shalini Kantayya.

“Thought-provoking…Coded Bias serves as both a wake-up call (to invasive practices the public doesn’t yet realize are being implemented) and a call to action.”

– Valerie Complex, Variety
