Artificial Intelligence Night presented with IBM and the FIFDH


Screening followed by a discussion with AI researchers and the film team, which will be available on from 22h00. The discussion will be open to questions from the Globe audience as well as to those joining online. The films are presented in VO/ST-FR, but the discussion will take place in English.

The Debater: After Noam Slonim’s sitcom was canceled, he took the next logical step and decided to build an artificial intelligence that could argue with him, and anyone else. What begins as a quixotic obsession turns into a once in a lifetime research effort that culminates in a face-off with the world debating champion.

Coded Bias: Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against? When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that many facial recognition technologies do not accurately detect darker-skinned faces or classify the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.
