Welcome to the Understanding Bias in Data Bootcamp channel! Examples of injustice will often make the news, but the roots of the sensational have their foundation in the mundane. Increasingly, the technology we create and the decisions we make are grounded in data. From healthcare to economics to facial recognition to self-driving cars, the who and how of the underlying code and analysis has an instrumental impact on our everyday lives. Too often, that impact can be disproportionately harmful to vulnerable and marginalized people. Join Princeton University’s Dr. Ruha Benjamin and Data Society’s Merav Yuravlivker and Amazon Robotics’ Matthew Finney for an insightful two day Bootcamp: Unlock an understanding of the kinds of bias that exist in data and artificial intelligence. Understand the impact that unconscious bias can have. Take action by grasping the role you can play as a technologist to identify and tackle bias.
