Automation, Algorithms, and Bias, from Settler Colonialism through the Future of Auditing: Home
On April 16, 2021, the Digital Scholarship Studio & Network (DSSN) hosted a symposium exploring automation, algorithms, and bias. The speakers were Sarah Montoya, “Settler Colonial Bias in GIS,” Cathy O’Neil, “What is the future of algorithmic auditing? Two different scenarios,” and Ewa Plonowska Ziarek, “Automation of Judgments and the Ends of Thinking.” Discussion was moderated by Evviva Weinraub Lajoie.
Many thanks to Sarah Montoya for providing most of the suggested readings in this guide.
The Netflix documentary Coded Bias was referenced a number of times by all three speakers. From Netflix: "This documentary investigates the bias in algorithms after M.I.T. Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini uncovered flaws in facial recognition technology."
