Session: AI Needs Black Feminism: Principles and Questions to Guide AI Development and Policy
“AI Needs Black Feminism: Principles and Questions to Guide AI Development and Policy” will introduce the audience to why Black Feminism provides the theoretical foundations to thwart algorithmic oppression. I will present my poetic guide forthcoming from Meatspace Press, “Do we need AI or do we need Black Feminisms? A Poetic Guide” that provides questions that can guide not only developers, academics, and policymakers interested in algorithmic equity, but all creating or influencing technology who want to ensure that their work is not furthering racial inequality.
- Examples of Algorithmic Oppression
- An understanding of Black Feminism
- How Black Feminism provides a great theoretical framework for equitable and liberating technology and technology policy
- 5 questions I present from my poetic guide that the audience can use to implement in any field of work/study they are in.
