Coded Bias, American Documentary, With Subtitles, Releasing on 5th April, 2021, Streaming on Netflix.
Coded Bias, an American documentary tells the story how even technology has been set up in a way that it is biased to certain people when technology is something that should’ve been for everyone. Following the story of Joy Buolamwini, the Ghanian-American founder of Algorithmic Justice League, it is revealed how the services set up by white men have gone to create issues. The issues have gone unnoticed for a long time, but it was very recently found when a face recognition system failed to recognise a black woman’s face. It only accepted when she happened to put on a white mask. This failed facial recognition created serious issues and how it has affected the communities especially in the States.
