Please join us for our First Tuesday meetup on Tuesday, November 2nd from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm. We'll once again be hosting two events: an in-person get-together at The Midwestern Diner (Gyldenløvesgade 4, 1369 Copenhagen) and an online event via Zoom for our members who can't meet up in person. This month we'll be keeping an eye on the handful of elections going on in the US including the state elections in New Jersey and Virginia. For those of you who are new to DADK, First Tuesday events are the informal social gatherings that we hold on the first Tuesday of every month. This is a great opportunity to socialize, network, and discuss politics with your fellow Americans living in Denmark. Suggested (but not required) contributions of 50 kr. will be gladly accepted, but only from US citizens. As always, you are welcome to bring guests.
If you'd like to join our in-person event, please RSVP below.
If you'd like to join us online, please RSVP here.

About the film:
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 the 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, artificial intelligence is not neutral, and women are leading the charge to ensure our civil rights are protected.
