Gallery 400 Lecture Room

Algorithms are becoming ubiquitous arbiters that govern our social interactions, medical records, judicial systems, and so on.

It is imperative that those who understand the need for inclusion and equity participate in the creation and testing of smart technologies to help keep biases and discrimination out of our newly encoded social systems.
