Unconscious Bias


Saturday 12.30pm, Discovery Lounge

Speakers: Professor Genevieve Bell, Ellen Broad, Ketan Joshi, Julia Powles

Facilitator: Daniel Midgely

New facial recognition and geo-location technologies are designed to make our lives easier and more secure. But when those who create new technology and artificial intelligence (AI) lose sight of the human users, issues of bias can surface. Would greater diversity in technological fields prevent this? How do we counteract bias or ensure it isn’t the responsibility of minorities to set things right? Join a panel of experts working in the field of data and analysis as they unpack the complexities and sensitivities of diversity and bias in technology.

This event is AUSLAN interpreted.
