bias

bias follows filmmaker Robin Hauser on a journey to uncover her hidden biases and explore how unconscious bias defines relationships, workplaces, our justice system, and technology.

 

There is a test that measures unconscious biases: the Harvard-based Implicit Association Test, or IAT. bias embarks on an investigation into the nature of human bias, tracking down the test’s co-creators, Mahzarin Banaji and Anthony Greenwald, to dig into the science behind bias and its effects on our social and professional lives.

In settings such as a police deadly-force-decision simulator and a virtual reality lab designed to reduce racial bias, the film also considers the possibilities presented by new technology.
