Programmed Discrimination?! The (Un)Fair Game in the Use of Algorithms and Artificial Intelligence

Can Artificial Intelligence discriminate? As part of Berlin Science Week, the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF), the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society (WI) and the Alexander von Humboldt Institute for Internet and Society (HIIG) invite you to a film screening followed by a panel discussion on November 2, 2022, starting at 6:30 pm.

Film screening "Coded Bias" followed by a discussion:

The evening will begin with a screening of the award-winning and widely acclaimed documentary "Coded Bias" by filmmaker and activist Shalini Kantayya. The film follows the research and advocacy of computer scientist and MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini, who discovered that some algorithms are unable to recognize the faces of People of Color, and that programs are only as free of bias as the data they are fed. As a result, Buolamwini and other scholars introduced the first legislative initiative in the U.S. to address bias in algorithms.

The subsequent panel discussion, moderated by Marie Kaiser (radioeins), will shed light on the scientific context:
Among others Prof. Dr. Helena Mihaljevič (ECDF) and Dr. Bianca Herlo (WI) will discuss (potentially) discriminatory algorithms and other dangers of digital technologies.

When: November 02, 2022 starting at 6:30 p.m. followed by a discussion until about 10 p.m.
The film screening followed by a discussion will take place on site at Filmkunst 66.
