Free online “Code Biased” movie screening and panel discussion

The movie CODED BIAS by Shalini Kantayya explores the fallout of MIT media lab researcher Joy Buolamwini’s startling discovery that facial recognition does not see dark-skinned faces accurately, and her journey to push for the first-ever legislation in the U.S. to govern against bias in the algorithms that impact us all.

Algorithmic bias can affect anyone. To increase awareness of this phenomenon, we are hosting a free virtual screening of Coded Bias through the Women Techmakers Program and Tokyo Institute of Technology’s Online Education Development Office from January 22 to 24, 2021 Japan time. This will be followed by a panel discussion with AI ethics movers in Japan on January 25, 2021 from 7:30PM to 9:00PM Japan time. You can mingle with other film viewers and AI ethics enthusiasts in raising questions for the panel discussion every 8:00PM to 8:30PM Japan time during the screening days. Please refer to the flyer for more details.

The slots are limited to 100 and we will be giving priority to students who can join our panel discussion as well. If selected, we will be sending you the watch links on January 20, 2021. Registration is open until January 18, 2021.

Tokyo Tech Writing Center to improve student English drafts

Tokyo Tech Writing Center (TTWCR) is a consultation facility where students can receive assistance with writing assignments through dialogic sessions with tutors who have been trained in tutoring and peer-reviewing skills.

For more details, please refer to the link below:

http://www.fl.ila.titech.ac.jp/writing_center.html

Adopting an understanding that the writer should take ownership of the writing process, our tutors respect the writer’s worries, ideas, and discoveries. In dialogic tutorials, those receiving tutoring will undergo substantial growth as academic writers by identifying ambiguities in your own writing and coming up with solutions on their own.

By honing writing skills through their own discoveries, not only will the writers make improvements to the writing assignment at hand, but they will also be able to take strides toward becoming autonomous writers who can produce well-deliberated texts on their own when they work on future writing assignments.

Whenever you need to improve your academic writing, please reserve a session.

Tokyo Tech Writing Center director: Prof. Yuto Koizumi
