Meredith Broussard: Confronting race, gender, and ability bias in tech | University of Cambridge

May 9, 2023, 5:00 PM

Join Meredith Broussard to discuss the ways that tech reproduces inequality, and discuss novel strategies to address persistent social problems.

Algorithms encode the biases of their creators, and also the biases of society in general. How do we confront this reality and simultaneously harness the enormous possibilities of AI?

In this talk, NYU professor Meredith Broussard will tell stories about creative thinkers who have used innovative strategies to develop technologies that truly work in the public interest.

She’ll help attendees think through ways that technology reproduces inequality, and discuss novel strategies for addressing persistent social problems.

Meredith’s latest book: More Than a Glitch: Confronting Race, Gender, and Ability Bias in Tech will be released by MIT Press in March 2023.

Join Meredith at Jesus College, Cambridge, in conversation with Prof Gina Neff, Executive Director of the Minderoo Centre for Technology and Democracy, University of Cambridge.
