  • Presenter Joy Buolamwini - Social impact technologist and founder, The Algorithmic Justice League, MIT MEDIA LAB
more


Extraordinary examples of the impact of coded bias and accountability during the design, development, and use of Coded Systems and digital customer platforms from around the world.

Joy Buolamwini is a poet of code on a mission to show compassion through computation. As a graduate researcher at the MIT Media Lab, she leads the Algorithmic Justice League to fight coded bias. Her research explores the intersection of social impact technology and inclusion. In support of this work, Buolamwini was awarded a grant as the Grand Prize winner of a national contest inspired by the critically acclaimed film Hidden Figures, based on the book by Margot Lee Shetterly.

Driven by an entrepreneurial spirit, Buolamwini's global interest in creating technology for social impact spans multiple industries and countries. As the inaugural Chief Technology Officer for Techturized Inc., a hair care technology company, and Swift Tech Solutions, a global health tech consultancy, she led software development for under-served communities in the United States, Ethiopia, Mali, Nigeria and Niger. In Zambia, she explored empowering citizens with skills to create their own technology through the Zamrize Project. In the United Kingdom, Buolamwini piloted a Service Year Initiative to launch Code4Rights which supports youth in creating meaningful technology for their communities in partnership with local organizations.

Through Filmmakers Collaborative, Buolamwini produces media that highlight diverse creators of technology. Her short documentary, The Coded Gaze: Unmasking Algorithmic Bias, debuted at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston and her pilot of the Code4Rights: Journey To Code training series debuted at the Vatican. She has presented keynote speeches and public talks at various forums including #CSforAll at the White House, Harvard University, Saïd Business School, Rutgers University, NCWIT, Grace Hopper Celebration and SXSWedu. Her TED.com featured talk has been viewed nearly a million times.

Buolamwini is a Rhodes Scholar, Fulbright Fellow, Google Anita Borg Scholar, Astronaut Scholar, A Stamps President's Scholar and Carter Center technical consultant recognized as a distinguished volunteer. She holds a master's degree from MIT, a master's degree in Learning and Technology from Oxford University, and a bachelor's degree in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology. She is completing a PhD at MIT.
