May 20, 2020 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Join women who code and ITExperience communities as we chat with Dr. Marshall on Deepfake Technology: The (Mis-) Representation of Data
The culture of tech is consistently framed as good, positive, neutral, fair and unbiased. Faster is better. Innovations, particularly in terms of automation, are beneficial advances to help humankind.
The broader view of tech reveals an influential segment of the tech space that has (un)intended consequences, do harm and target highly marginalized groups. Faster is not always better. Some innovations do not advance but stall or reverse progress.
Examples of tech perpetuating harm and digitizing discriminatory acts are gaining national attention, such as predictive policing and facial recognition.
In this webinar,Dr. Marshall describes deep fake technology and discuss issues related to ethics, privacy, and accountability for companies who use “black box” algorithms to make decisions and the respective societal impacts.
Dr. Marshall is a scholar and educator who is passionate about data (data science, data analytics, data mining, and its variants), educating anyone (especially those who like learning) and diversifying computing.
