Have you ever observed a divisive, rage-fuelled fight online and wondered about the role technology played in the background? In her most recent book, Discriminating Data (2021), Wendy Chun reveals how polarization is a goal—not an error—within big data and machine learning.

In this discussion, Professor Jay Dolmage will work through an overview of myths that offer a shorthand for the ways that disability is narrowly represented or depicted across cultures.
