EVENT DETAILS
Workshops Understanding AI Data Bias Workshop
BYOW Workshop: Build Your Own Words to Resist Algorithmic Censorship
Meme Tactics Workshop

Join City Lights, the Goethe-Institut San Francisco, & Gray Area for Revisions, a week-long festival exploring how technological bias shapes our cultural realities. Our trust in mediated experiences has never been lower. Governed by algorithms that perpetuate the biases & weaknesses of their developers, our cultural consumption is increasingly shaped by undetectable forces that determine our reality. Images play an important role here: fake photos & videos created with deep neural networks threaten privacy, democracy, & national security. Vision recognition systems skew gender, race, & class differences & become vehicles of discrimination. Underdeveloped AI models misrepresent the health disparities faced by minority populations. How can we illuminate the algorithmic bias embedded within technology & counter the perpetuation of bias? What innovative approaches can we develop to strengthen inclusion, diversity, & sustainability in technology? This festival brings a network of luminaries together to share new perspectives & rewrite new visions advocating for justice & reclaiming power. The festival is part of the project IMAGE + BIAS that critically engages with the cultural realities being increasingly determined by imperceptible technologies.
