In Shalini Kantayya’s provocative new documentary feature MIT Media Lab researcher Joy
Buolamwini discovers that facial recognition technology does not see race and gender accurately. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral. What does it mean when artificial intelligence (AI) increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against? CODED BIAS explores the fallout of this discovery and weaves in the stories of an emerging generation of women working as data scientists, mathematicians and activists in the United States, the UK, South Africa and China. Together they lead the fight to protect our civil rights in the face of increasing corporate surveillance and algorithmic oppression. Drawing from stylistic sci-fi elements to visualize its concepts, CODED BIAS inspires and engages audiences to reimagine tech and civil rights around the world.
