5x10 Searching for Bias

Tuesday, October 5 at 4:30pm to 5:15pm

Roemmele Global Commons, Williams Hall

Are search engines objective catalogs of the contents of the web? Do they simply gather information about web pages and list them for us in neutral ways? Or do they replicate, amplify, or introduce bias when presenting us with search results? In this hands-on workshop, we’ll address these questions by performing some simple experiments using search engines. We’ll also discuss how search engines use artificial intelligence (AI) “under the hood” and whether AI contributes to or mitigates bias. If possible, please bring a device you can use to access a search engine.
