With Marleen Stikker van Waag as an inspiring keynote, Pascal Wiggers from the Responsible AI Lab with an interesting presentation about recruitment & selection, and our own Katrien de Witte and Kevin de Bruin to tell more about our Center of Expertise Applied AI.

The livecast referenced Coded Bias, a documentary about the biases that AI entails. Below is a brief summary and trailer of the documentary.
Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence increasingly governs our liberties? And what are the consequences for the people AI is biased against? When MIT Media Lab researcher Joy Buolamwini discovers that many facial recognition technologies do not accurately detect darker-skinned faces or classify the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.
