Code for Bias is a feature documentary that follows the fallout of MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s startling discovery that most facial recognition software does not see dark-skinned faces or women with accuracy, and begins to uncover other types of bias in the machine learning algorithms that impact us all. Through Joy’s transformation from scientist to tireless advocate to push for the first-ever federal legislation to govern this technology, Code for Bias sheds light on the impacts of AI on civil rights and democracy.
