BIAS IN ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE!? Panel discussion of the documentary Coded Bias 23.05. 16:00 (Zoom)

Artificial intelligence (AI) is taking on more and more tasks around us and often paves the way for innovative digital solutions. Algorithms are used to make recommendations for insurance policies, recognise our voices, and check our passports at the airport. However, it seems that algorithms, like humans, are not always neutral or fair. The documentary Coded Bias by director Shalini Kantayya focusses on racist and sexist bias in artificial intelligence. It illuminates the dangers and concrete consequences for those affected by discriminatory algorithms. In a panel discussion with experts Markus Ahlers and Fabio Tollon and moderators Pia Ortwein and Leonie Wiemeyer, we will discuss the dangers of bias in algorithms and the influence of their human creators. Participants will be provided with a link to the online screening and will have 7 days to view the documentary in preparation of the panel discussion. The event is open to employees as well as Masters' students of philosophy of science of Bielefeld University and Leibniz University Hannover. Please register using your university e-mail address at pretix.eu/grk2073/codedbias/. If you have questions, please contact Leonie Wiemeyer (leonie.wiemeyer@philos.uni-hannover.de).
