Join LIVE from NYPL as data scientist Meredith Broussard, one of the few Black female researchers in artificial intelligence, discusses her new book about race, gender, and ability biases in tech with Alondra Nelson, social scientist and former deputy assistant to President Biden in the Office of Science and Technology Policy. In her book More Than a Glitch, Broussard asks, what if racism, sexism, and ableism aren't just bugs in mostly functional machinery—what if they're coded into the system itself? Her conversation with Professor Nelson will address how neutrality in tech is a myth and why algorithms need to be held accountable.

Venue: Stavros Niarchos Foundation Library, NYPL
