How Smart is Artificial Intelligence? Kate Crawford
Look Who's Talking - Sunday 7 March 4.45pm - 5.45pm - Free
Artificial Intelligence systems are trained to represent, interpret, and codify human beings. But does the process of classification itself carry implicit bias? Kate Crawford will examine how AI is built upon subtle systems of power, which can reproduce racist, misogynist and ableist judgements and what this means for the future.
Researcher and Professor Kate Crawford is the co-founder of the AI Now Institute at New York University. She is the inaugural Visiting Chair for AI and Justice at the École Normale Supérieure in Paris and the Miegunyah Distinguished Visiting Fellow at the University of Melbourne. She studies the social implications of data systems.
