Coded Bias Free Film Screening

December 7, 2020 - December 13, 2020

 

Online

| Free – $5

Watch Coded Bias This Week for Free

The 2020 documentary Coded Bias sits at the intersection of race, artificial intelligence and a pursuit of justice. The film, which debuted at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival, follows MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s startling discovery that many facial recognition technologies fail more often on darker-skinned faces. Buolamwini delves into an investigation of widespread bias in AI and the person-made and machine-learned algorithms that drive it.

All Vermonters will be able to stream this 2020 documentary from December 7 through 13. This Vermont screening is organized by partners from across the state who have been inspired to share the film and engage in conversations about these vital civil rights issues.

Partners include: The Vermont Community Foundation, FreshTracks Capital, the Rowland Foundation, C2, Vermont Alliance for Racial Justice, the Vermont NEA and the Vermont chapter of Women in Machine Learning & Data Science.
