Bias: Prejudice for or against one thing, person or group compared to another, usually in a way considered to be unfair.

Implicit Bias: "Thoughts and feelings are "implicit" if we are unaware of them or mistaken about their nature. We have a bias when rather than being neutral, we have a preference for (or aversion to) a person or group of people. Thus, we use the term "implicit bias" to describe when we have attitudes towards people or group of people or associate stereotypes with them without our conscious knowledge. A fairly commonplace example of this is seen in studies that show that white people will frequently associate criminality with black people without even realizing they are doing it."
