DigiURI Media Club | Coded Bias
What do machine learning algorithms do? In what ways can they introduce bias? Who is responsible for this problem, and why should non-computer scientists study algorithms? Join us March 7 at 12pm Eastern to explore these questions as we discuss Coded Bias, the 85 minutue documentary available on Netflix. If you don't have access to Netflix, not to worry! Our discussion hosts, Pamela Morris and Melda Yildiz have excellent recommendations for alternative and additional texts on algorithmic bias (see the list below).
