Building an Ethical Algorithmic World: Coded Bias Screening
October 26, 2021, 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm
Interested in the ethics of algorithms? Concerned with the current biases within algorithms and the dangers these biases pose to particular groups of people (e.g. women and darker-skinned people)? Join us in this three-part Algorithmic Bias event to delve deeper into this issue. First, watch a free screening of “Coded Bias”, then join a live Q&A session with the film’s director Shalini Kantayya. Finally, attend a panel discussion with experts Marc-Antoine Dilhac (Canada Research Chair in Public Ethics and Political Theory), Aline Talhouk (Assistant Professor, Obstetrics & Gynecology, UBC), Blaise Agüera y Arcas (VP and Research Fellow, Google Research), and Mijung Park (Canada CIFAR AI Chair).
The Coded Bias Screening will take place from October 26th – November 2nd. Watch anytime during the dates above after registering.
