Race, Technology, and Algorithmic Bias | Vision & Justice || Radcliffe Institute

At “Vision & Justice” on Friday, April 26, Joy Buolamwini, Latanya Sweeney, and Darren Walker come together to discuss the limits of technology in the face of algorithmic bias, or the fact that AI systems often either mischaracterize or fail to recognize dark-skinned faces. The two-day creative convening considered the role of the arts in understanding the nexus of art, race, and justice.
