Coded Bias: A Movie Screening and Discussion

Thursday, March 11, 2021 at 7:00pm to 8:30pm

Virtual Event

Join us for a screening and live panel discussion of Coded Bias, a documentary film that explores the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately.

The panel discussion features director Shalini Kantayya and three scholars who study the ethics and policies surrounding facial recognition technologies—Shobita Parthasarathy (Michigan), Luke Stark (Western Ontario), and Simone Browne (UT Austin). 

The panel discussion will take place on March 11, 2021, 7:00 PM ET. Screening will be available to registered participants the week prior to the event.  

The event is organized by students and faculty at the Digital Due Process Clinic, a clinical research program at Cornell University. 

More information about the event can be found on the Clinic's website.
