Yale tackles difficult issues. This includes the potential racism surrounding fake hair.

The Bungie Foundation donated $1,000,000 to the university’s School of Engineering and Applied Science.

There is a white supremacist bias in video game renderers.

Human hair representation is a sign of algorithmic bias. This code is racially coded as Caucasian hair or European hair. This characteristic is more common in Black communities.

Theodore Kim is an associate professor of computer science and co-lead of the Yale Computer Graphics Group. He explains the goal of his project to “harmonize”:

“This research will serve as an example to demonstrate how to identify systemic racism within computer graphics and how to take concrete steps to reduce their harm. ”

The age of antiracism is here Kimberle Crone from UCLA Law states that antiracism seeks the end to the normalization and dominance by white people.

Yale has been locked and loaded to this end.

Here’s more:

“The tools, algorithms, and programs that we are developing will allow human hair in all of its elegance and variety to faithfully be represented in films and video games,” said Theodore.

Bungie Technical Dialog Designer Kareem and Co-Lead For Black at Bungie Employee Resources Group (ERG) said that Theodore’s efforts to increase representation are inspirational and especially important to younger audiences.

Yale has been at the forefront of social justice. Yale is totally anti-racist.

Will the university succeed in its mission to eradicate racism onscreen? Or could it find a way to waste a million dollars? Only time will tell.

Inspiration is plentiful at the moment:

Bungie Technical Dialog Designer Kareem and Co-Lead For Black at Bungie Employee Resources Group (ERG) said that Theodore’s efforts to increase representation are inspirational and especially important to younger audiences.

He stated, “By supporting the research, we have a chance to effect change at a larger scale.” We don’t have the tools to make characters like ourselves with the tools that we have. Professor Theodore’s group is working to change this. We are so glad to see them succeed!

Christine Edwards is Senior Manager at Bungie Foundation and stated that it was a “truly an honor” to support Kim.

She stated, “We aim to move our industry forward through anti-racism via corporate and philanthropic initiatives”. “I feel optimistic knowing that Theodore will make a major shift in the industry’s ability to create truly representative characters. ”

Crew members can look at past programming efforts by other programmers if they are surprised at the inattention to distinctive black characters’ traits.

It is time to look at the social justice issues faced by whites. Harrison Ford was faceless and pale, and he was made bald.
