Sponsored by MyWorld, the Bristol Digital Games Lab in collaboration with us, the Centre for Creative Technologies, are hosting a concept game jam. This is a fun and creative way of thinking through complex ideas, harnessing collective creative thinking via game design. This will be led by Edward King and Richard Cole.
Our theme for this jam is Exposing Algorithmic Bias
From education and health to financial services and facial recognition, algorithms have become key components in scaling decision making. The danger, of course, is they can embed and augment existing biases, or even generate new types of bias within complex systems. This danger is only amplified by the application of machine learning and AI. The aim of this condensed game jam is to think about how the mechanisms of gaming and play can expose these processes.
Where: Humanities Exhibition Gallery Space (7 Woodland Road)
When: Wednesday 29 November, 16:00-20:00
The event is open to both University staff, students, and the wider public. Pizza and drinks provided!
