Technology, Racial Profiling, and Social Justice


Technology, Racial Profiling, and Social Justice

The first of a four-part series looking at Technology and Social Justice.  This virtual hour-long discussion will explore Facial Recognition Technology and Law Enforcement's use of the flawed data it provides.  The National Institutes of Standards and Technology says that facial recognition systems falsely identify African American and Asian faces 10 to 100 times more than those of Caucasian faces.  

Illinois Institute of Technology Professor of Philosophy Elisabeth Hildt will moderate a discussion about the repercussions that stem from facial recognition systems' struggles to correctly identify people of color. Joining in the discussion will be Deborah Raji, a tech fellow at AI Now Institute at New York University, and ACLU of Illinois Staff Attorney Rachel Murphy.
