The Technology and Structural Inequity speaker series will focus on the impact of technology on marginalized communities.
The Technology and Structural Inequity speaker series will focus on the impact of technology on marginalized communities. The series will bring together leading academics and activists whose work is influencing how we think about and how we fight against the harms that technology is causing. The speakers will examine how technology is being used to increase the surveillance and policing of marginalized communities and how many of these technologies are inherently biased and discriminatory. Please join us for the first event in the series on privacy and surveillance on February 17, 2021 at 12 p.m. This roundtable discussion will feature Glencora Borradaile (Associate Professor and Associate School Head of Computer Science, Oregon State University), Elissa M. Redmiles (Faculty Member and Research Group Leader, Max Planck Institute for Software Systems), and Matt Mitchell (Technology Fellow, Ford Foundation), in a conversation moderated by organizer Seny Kamara (Associate Professor of Computer Science, Brown University). Please register to receive the webinar link.
