Welcome to the College of Engineering
Professor is on a mission to make a community that’s better, and fairer, for more people
The classes Don Winiecki teaches in the computer science department help students identify bias in technology – facial recognition software that misidentifies women and people of color, or the recent example of a health care algorithm that was found to have a significant racial bias when determining which patients should receive additional care.
Technology has these flaws because the scientists who created and refined it based it on themselves and on their own experiences, said Winiecki, a professor of ethics and morality in professional practice in the College of Engineering. This extends to technology meant to aid people who are blind or visually impaired.
