About this event

We are delighted to announce that the IAS annual Theme of 2021-22 will be launched in November with an in-person screening of Shalini Kantayya’s multi-award-winning documentary Coded Bias, followed by a panel discussion Chaired by Professor Jin Xuan (AACME), Co-Lead of the IAS Theme, that will include IAS Visiting Fellows, invited scholars and Loughborough’s new Vice-Chancellor, Professor Nick Jennings.‌

Focusing on MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s discovery that many facial recognition technologies misclassify women and darker-skinned faces, Coded Bias raises compelling issues regarding the ubiquity of AI in everyday life and the impact of widespread algorithmic bias on matters of social justice, equity and governance.
