The Register: Google’s Hollywood ‘interventions’ made on-screen coders cooler. “Google operates a ‘Computer Science in Media Team’ that stages ‘interventions’ in Hollywood to steer film-makers towards realistic and accurate depictions of what it’s like to work in IT. The company announced the team in 2015 and gave it the job of ‘making CS more appealing to a wider audience, by dispelling stereotypes and showcasing positive portrayals of underrepresented minorities in tech.’ … The efforts of that team have now been detailed in a study [PDF], Cracking the Code: The Prevalence and Nature of Computer Science Depictions in Media.”
