Algorithmic Discrimination in Hiring and Social Welfare Webinar


This event was held May 6th, 2021.

The risk of algorithmic discrimination has risen. The utilization of artificial intelligence results in both discriminatory hiring practices and increased policing of the impoverished. We discussed how algorithms work, how people with disabilities and racial minorities can be especially harmed, and how employers and advocates can mitigate these harms.
