About the Event

What are algorithms? Can this invisible code be trusted? Are algorithms growing too powerful? Join us for a screening and discussion of the Al Jazeera English series All Hail the Algorithm, produced by Ali Rae. Rae travels from New York to Kenya to Mexico to explore issues of algorithmic fairness, data colonialism, online political manipulation, and biometrics…and what we can do to design a better future.

The discussion will be led by Virginia Eubanks, Associate Professor of Political Science at SUNY-Albany and author of the award-winning book Automating Inequality: How High-Tech Tools Profile, Police, and Punish the Poor.

Free and open to all
