How I'm fighting bias in algorithms - Joy Buolamwini

Course highlights

Massachusetts Institute of Technology grad student Joy Buolamwini was working with facial analysis software when she noticed a problem: the software didn't detect her face -- because the people who coded the algorithm hadn't taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures. Now she's on a mission to fight bias in machine learning, a phenomenon she calls the "coded gaze." It's an eye-opening talk about the need for accountability in coding - as algorithms take over more and more aspects of our lives.
