Computational algorithms are currently used in a wide variety of socially impactful domains - including business, healthcare, and criminal justice - with little oversight or accountability measures in place. We know that while these systems may appear to produce objective outcomes, they can include human biases encoded into the datasets used to derive decisions. In this session, we'll view a pre-produced video discussion with leading algorithmic bias experts, and then collectively examine this topic through an applied ethical lens.

This event is a partnership between Science and Society, OIT, and the Center for Computational Thinking.
