Oct 15 2021 | Building Equitable Ecologies of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: A mini-symposium with artists & data scientists
Big Data and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become a major force that impacts our daily lives in essential ways, from how political messaging and marketing are designed, to automating the process of deciding who gets hired or which neighborhood should be intensely patrolled. Big Data and AI can be an important agent for social justice and equality; or they can also be used to perpetuate injustice and hurt populations that are already disadvantaged and marginalized. Artists have been at the forefront, together with scientists, in exploring ways in which AI systems can be more equitable, transparent and inclusive. This mini-symposium brings leading voices in the field together.
