Spotlight Cinema: Coded Bias
December 2, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - December 9, 2020 @ 6:00 pm
Essential viewing for our increasingly digital lives, this eye-opening documentary uncovers the hidden impact of artificial intelligence on our civil liberties. As big tech companies increasingly rely on algorithms to carry out their work, the unconscious biases embedded in its software exposes the racism and sexism at the root of the tech industry. Director Shalini Kantayya introduces us to the women valiantly fighting against these sinister developments across the globe, exposing surveillance programs everywhere from China to London to right here in the US. Hailed as both a “wake up call and a call to action” by Variety, Coded Bias has already begun appearing on “Best of 2020” film lists, starting with Artforum.
“Fascinating and sometimes even enraging… Coded Bias takes something huge and scary and breaks it down into small, easily understood morality tales, featuring everyday heroes fighting to save our future.” – Noel Murray, Los Angeles Times
