We’re proud to partner with our friends at The Betsy Hotel on Miami Beach to offer a special presentation of the documentary, CODED BIAS.
Thanks to their support, we’re able to offer this film to you for FREE on Monday, February 1st @7:00pm (EST)!

When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that most facial-recognition software misidentifies women and darker-skinned faces, as a woman of color working in a field dominated by white males, she is compelled to investigate further. What she discovers drives her to push the US government to create legislation to counter the far-reaching dangers of bias in a technology that is steadily encroaching on our lives. Centering the voices of women leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected, CODED BIAS asks two key questions: what is the impact of Artificial Intelligence’s increasing role in governing our liberties? And what are the consequences for people stuck in the crosshairs due to their race, color, and gender?

POST-FILM DISCUSSION:

Join us immediately following the screening of CODED BIAS for a post-film discussion (via Zoom) with FIU’s Dr. Mark Finlayson, Code For South Florida’s director Gregory Johnson and technologist Ernie Hsiung. The discussion will start promptly at 8:35pm (EST).

“A chilling plunge into Orwellian reality.”
– HOLLYWOOD REPORTER

“Coded Bias serves as both a wake-up call (to invasive practices the public doesn’t yet realize are being implemented) and a call to action.”
– VARIETY

“[A] fascinating study of how even the seemingly impartial world of technology is subject to embedded racism and privilege.”
