Building an Ethical Algorithmic World: A 3-Part Series

Part 3: Panel Discussion with Algorithm Experts

Building an Ethical Algorithmic World: A 3-Part Series 

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 the Justice, Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (JEDI) Health Cluster Alliance 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), and Mijung Park (Canada CIFAR AI Chair).

Coded Bias –A film by Shalini Kantayya 

Film Summary: When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that most facial-recognition software misidentifies women and darker-skinned faces, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. 

This event is brought to you by the JEDI Health Cluster Alliance, and hosted by DFP, BMI AICAIDADASHBrain Circuits, and the UW Computational Neuroscience Centre.
