Description

Emerging Leaders Initiative of Utah is excited to announce ELI Utah x Sundance!

This year, ELI Utah is teaming up with the 2020 Sundance Film Festival! We invite you to join us to watch one of four of the festival's films that explore issues surrounding civic engagement and government.

Tickets to the screening are no-cost, but limited to two tickets per registration. In order to give as many individuals as possible the opportunity to attend, we ask that you register to attend one film only.

WHAT: ELI Utah x Sundance: Coded Bias
WHEN: Tuesday, January 28 at 7:00 PM
WHERE: The Grand Theatre
1575 State Street
Salt Lake City, UT 84115

ABOUT THE SCREENING: CODED BIAS

Modern society sits at the intersection of two crucial questions: What does it mean when artificial intelligence (AI) 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 most facial-recognition software does not accurately identify darker-skinned faces and the faces of women, she delves into an investigation of widespread bias in algorithms. As it turns out, AI is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION:

  • The screening is free but ticketed. Tickets for ELI Utah x Sundance screenings are limited to one (1) film and two (2) tickets per registration. A waitlist will be also be available for each screening.
  • Tickets will be distributed the day of the screening by ELI Utah. Details to follow.
  • If you register for tickets, but are unable to attend, please notify ELI Utah at nfo@emergingleadersutah.org as soon as possible so we can offer the tickets to individuals on the wait list.
  • Please be aware that all screenings are overbooked to ensure that the theater gets filled. What this means is that every seat is a first-come, first-served basis and a ticket does not guarantee that you will be able to see the film. ELI Utah recommends that people arrive at a minimum of 45 minutes early to ensure they get a seat. Sundance may have to turn people away if the theater fills up as they can not allow people to stand in the theater.
  • Please note: Films in the Festival are not yet rated.
