Automating Bias: How Computers Are Making Decisions About Your Life


NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund


This is a community-led event to learn how widely-used technology harms New York communities, and how residents can demand change. About this Event New York City agencies are relying on algorithms or Automated Decision Systems (ADSs) to make decisions about every major area of New Yorkers’ lives, including Public Housing, Education, Employment, Child Welfare, and Policing. While ADSs are pitched as being “objective,” these technologies frequently target and harm communities of color, low-income residents, youths, immigrants and religious communities, communities with disabilities, and more.
