This is a microlecture of a Hardware, Software, and Networks class we did in our hybrid class. We are testing these short videos for the benefit of our online students. It is not the complete class interaction we had building this board. It gives you a glimpse of topics covered.
Connecting Databases | #DrJoseWhiteboards
This is a microlecture of the Databases class that I covered in hybrid class. It is a brief review of connected databases concepts that you read in the databases module.

How I’m fighting bias in algorithms | Joy Buolamwini | TEDxBeaconStreet
MIT Media Lab grad student Joy Buolamwini was working with facial recognition software when she noticed a problem: the software didn’t recognize her face — because the people who coded the algorithm hadn’t taught it to identify a broad range of skin tones and facial structures. Now she’s on a mission to fight bias in machine learning. She spoke at TEDxBeaconStreet in Boston. Join #codedgaze. (Ref: TED.com)

What is the social impact of facial recognition? How developers can use full spectrum inclusion coding to improve our lives?
Topic includes logic programming, coding, facial recognition software, and related uses of technologies to solve social issues.
