Bias in the Age of the Algorithm

Algorithms are in use all around us, every day. These decision-making processes are driven by large amounts of data…data that has been shown to possess inherent biases. How do those algorithmic biases impact us? How can they be addressed? And what do they say about us as a society? This free virtual panel will delve into these key challenges in the age of the algorithm. Join us Thursday, 30 May from 12-1PM EDT (GMT -4).
