Racial Justice in the Age of Data and AI – a Community Forum

February 11 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

This community forum is a follow-up event of Timnit Gebru’s recent seminar, “Computer vision: who is helped and who is harmed?” (watch video). The record-breaking attendance of the seminar and the active participation of the audience reflected the significance of this topic to our data science community. Four faculty members will moderate the forum, where attendees can share their observations and insights, and thoughts on how data scientists can be part of the solution for racial justice in the age of data and AI.
