Coded Bias 
Free virtual screening, with Director/Producer Shalini Kantayya doing a live Q&A

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties?

In Coded Bias, a critically acclaimed Sundance 2020 premiere, Shalini Kantayya investigates these bedrock issues—and meets the people working to address them.
