HAI seminar<br><br>Title: Prototyping Feminist AI<br>Speaker: Renata Avila, 2020 CCSRE Race and Technology Practitioner Fellow<br>Date: May 5<br>Time: 10:00am<br>Event link: https://stanford.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_CaLHcQnySqe7gqUuW4qvcw<br><... can feminist methodologies and approaches be applied and be transformative when developing AI and ADM systems? How can AI innovation and social systems innovation be catalysed concomitantly to create a positive movement for social change larger than the sum of the data science or social science parts? How can we produce actionable research that will lead to the profound changes needed - from scratch - in the processes to produce AI? Can we prototype better digital futures? Which disciplines should we include? Where are the gaps? And how can we make a strong case to prototype different, better digital futures, before embarking on big AI projects in the public sector? The seminar will collect ideas and experiences from different disciplines to draft a blueprint for a better modelled digital future.&nbsp;&nbsp;<br><br>Bio:&nbsp;<br>Renata Avila, (Guatemalan), International Human Rights Lawyer and author.
