Intersectionality and Algorithmic Bias

Algorithmic machine learning is everywhere, from resume scanning software to advertisements social media. But the discrimination inherently programmed into these algorithms can have real consequences for marginalized groups, including people of color and disabled people. In this episode, advocate, educator and attorney Lydia X.Z. Brown tells Qudsiya about their work to help more people understand and combat these threats. Lydia and Qudsiya also explore the definition of intersectionality, and its relevance when combating algorithmic discrimination.
