Encode Justice is committed to building an inclusive, multigenerational movement for algorithmic justice, and fighting for technology that can be used to uplift, not oppress. This winter they bring their work to the Museum of Science for a special one-night-only conversation!

Algorithms have left no part of our world untouched, revolutionizing cancer diagnosis in one context and assisting pretrial release decisions for criminal defendants in another. However, the bias that plagues human decision-making can reach even the seemingly impenetrable, objective mathematical formulas that define artificial intelligence. For example, algorithms used in the US criminal justice system make independent decisions by analyzing countless instances of real-world data in search of patterns that explain certain results. This process forces them to digest, unconsciously, the bias that has historically victimized marginalized groups. As some have put it, the devil is in the data.

That’s where Encode Justice, a coalition of youth activists fighting for human rights, accountability, and justice under AI, comes in. Harnessing a global network of volunteers from all over the United States and world, they champion informed AI policy and encourage youth to confront the challenges of the age of automation through political advocacy, community organizing, education programming, and content creation.

This program is free, thanks to the generosity of the Lowell Institute.
