- Demo on Gender Bias in AI featured by NDTV

Nishtha Madaan, Sameep Mehta in collaboration with Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi and Delhi Technological University analyzed Gender Bias in Bollywood movies. IBM’s Research division in India collected multi-modal data on over 4,000 Bollywood films including information related to plot, characters, story arc, posters and trailers. Using complex algorithms, quantitatively demonstrate how gender bias manifests in different films, and to what degree they are present. Further they are actively developing novel algorithms for detecting and removing such and other biases. IBM Research believes this will go a long way in bringing more awareness to gender bias and hopefully nullify in near future.

Their study got published in many news agencies including Times of India, the most followed Indian English news.
