You are invited to join the Stanford Institute for Human-Centered Artificial Intelligence (HAI) and Stanford Arts for a special screening and panel discussion of Coded Bias, a documentary film focusing on the ground-breaking research by MIT’s Joy Buolamwini into facial recognition technology’s troubling racial bias. Coded Bias, which premiered at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, follows Buolamwini and other data scientists as they discover and investigate algorithmic injustice and push for legislation to protect people from the technology’s misuse. Registration for the film screening is limited. You will have access to watch the film for five days starting September 23.
On September 30, 2020 at 4:00pm, we will host a virtual panel discussion with Coded Bias director Shalini Kantayya and HAI co-director and computer vision expert Fei-Fei Li, moderated by HAI associate director and Stanford professor of English Michele Elam, as they discuss the film’s core lessons and the future of facial recognition technology. There is no ticket limit to this event and it will be completely open to the public.
