Our fundraising events showcase the best of Italy: art, culture, wine and la dolce vita!

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.

Not only that you will be tasting your own amazing cooking skills, but you will also be learning new things about our Asian heritage, history, and cultures as well.

Jessica, is a Thai- American living in in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Through many years of traveling around the world, she had discovered the world cuisines and able to convey them to dishes on her own.
As a result (and thanks to the pandemic), Jessica had developed her passion for cooking, and one of her favorite cuisines to cook is Thai cuisine.
