About the event

Join us for a talk with Fernando Delgado -- Race & the Machine: Historical and Contemporary Perspectives on AI & Race! Please note the NEW DATE -- WEDNESDAY, MARCH 10 at 6:30pm

Automated decision systems have been shown to replicate, and even exacerbate, racially disparate outcomes in a variety of contexts including criminal sentencing, credit scoring, hiring, and policing.The complicated and fraught relationship between AI and race extends decades back in fact and is set to grow even more gnarly in the decades to come. This talk will cover some of the key contemporary issues that have emerged at the intersection of AI and race, setting them in a larger historical context to help us assess the possible futures to come.
