Data [Beyond] the ATL - Discriminating Data: Individuals, Neighborhoods, Proxies

A Special Data in the ATL event co-sponsored by the GSU Humanities Research Center

Guest Speaker:
Dr. Wendy Chun, Canada 150 Research Chair and Professor, School of Communications, Simon Fraser University

Registration coming soon

Dr. Wendy Hui Kyong Chun has studied both systems design engineering and English literature, which she combines and mutates in her current work on digital media. She is the author of several books, notably Updating to Remain the Same: Habitual New Media (MIT Press, 2016) and Programmed Visions: Software and Memory (MIT Press, 2011). Her most recent book as co-author, Pattern Discrimination (U of Minnesota Press, 2019), explores how AI algorithms create bias and practice racial exclusions thereby inscribing power relations into media. She earned her bachelor's in systems design engineering and English (a first-of-its-kind double major) from the University of Waterloo and M.A. and Ph.D., both in English, from Princeton University.
