Unwrapped: Racial Bias Within Artificial Intelligence
Come out for an in-depth discussion of the issues of bias in AI 

As the capabilities of artificial intelligence continue to expand at an increasing rate, it becomes more prevalent in our everyday lives. We now rely on AI for not only for menial quantitative labour, but are also entrusting it with complex qualitative tasks in fields that hold significant impact over the lives of human beings. Because of the potential human cost involved in these areas, it has become increasingly important to investigate whether the systems that make these qualitative judgments do so in an objective manner.
