Learning from Inequality in the History of Computing
April 11, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Dr. Marie Hicks, Associate Professor in the History of Technology at Illinois Institute of Technology, will discuss how diverse actors helped build the field of computing and will make the connection between past mistakes and current issues. From gendered labor discrimination to historical examples of early algorithmic bias, this talk shows how understanding the long history of difference and diversity in computing helps us better understand, and begin to solve, the problems we are facing today.
