Professional Dimensions will be hosting a discussion for the film Coded Bias from American Filmmaker and Activist Shalini Kantayya. This film focuses on Joy Buolamwini, a researcher at the MIT Media Lab. She discovered that facial recognition software could not detect her dark skin tone until she put on a white mask. Her experiments and research pointed out serious inefficiencies at some of the biggest technology companies around the globe.
Our discussion will take place on February 26, 2021 @ 6:00 pm via zoom and will be hosted by PD member Kerri Balliet. This 90-minute program will include small breakout group discussions surrounding thought provoking questions prompted by the film.
You can watch the movie from the comfort of your living room any time before the discussion by purchasing a ticket ($3.99) from MKE Film. Tickets can be purchased here.
