Coded Bias: a must-watch documentary on representation in Tech

Recently I watched this documentary on coded bias in AI and ML software. It has made me aware that representation of all layers of our society in tech is absolutely necessary.

I highly recommend seeing it, even if you’re not into tech.

Coded Bias uncovers that AI software is, unintentionally, reflecting our society’s inequalities and even reinforcing them. Leading to situations like:

  • Face detection software unable to scan faces with deeper skin tones
  • Recruitment software automatically discarding all resumes send in by women
  • Facial recognition software have much higher misidentification rates for certain populations due to insufficient testing of all layers of society
