Sundance 2020: 'Coded Bias'

Jan 28, 2020

MIT researcher Joy Buolamwini was working with a facial recognition software when she encountered a problem: The robot she was programming could not detect her own face, and she had to wear a white mask in order to finish the project.

Shalini Kantayya’s documentary, Coded Bias, explores the fallout from Joy’s discovery that AI is not racially neutral, and introduces us to the rebels and misfits of data science who are trying to intercede.
