About

University of Toronto Entrepreneurship and Hart House Black Futures present a screening of the multi-award winning film Coded Bias directed by Shalini Kantayya. A critical analysis of race and the downside of implicit bias, the film questions the everyday ways that AI entrenches the status quo and reinserts the voices of racialized communities in an effort to make inclusivity a lived reality.

Synopsis

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against? When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that many facial recognition technologies do not accurately detect darker-skinned faces or classify the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.

Join us for an evening that will spark conversation, raise questions and challenge us all to rethink the "intelligence" in Artificial Intelligence. 

5:45 pm - 7:00 pm: Pre-screening Reception and Discussion hosted by U of T Entrepreneurship (5th-floor lobby)
