We’re proud to share that Consumer Reports (CR)’s BAD INPUT has been selected as a Silver Winner in the 3rd Annual Anthem Awards! The recognition is in the Responsible Tech category for Driving Greater Awareness Around AI and Big Data.
BAD INPUT was created in partnership with Kapor Center and Logan Industry, where filmmaker Alice Gu directed three short films that look at how biases in algorithms and data sets result in unfair practices toward communities of color, often without their knowledge. Join us in celebrating this remarkable win and join the fight to stop algorithmic bias at badinput.org.
More on BAD INPUT:
Computer algorithms are embedded into almost every part of our lives – whether it’s applying for a loan, getting auto insurance, or accessing medical services. These algorithms are fueled by hundreds of thousands of data points, but many of these data sets are flawed, outdated, and not representative of the population – which can harm communities of color and others. When companies don’t account for a diversity of experiences, or simply replicate racist and biased systems, they build flawed products that hurt people. And since these prejudiced algorithms are often hidden, it’s a difficult problem to fix. That’s why, in partnership with the Kapor Foundation and the filmmaker Alice Gu, Consumer Reports produced the BAD INPUT video series
