A presentation from FWD+Organise 2019 on the basics of Artificial Intelligence: the policy implications, opportunities and challenges AI presents for social justice campaigns.
From facial recognition systems that discriminate based on race to the inequity that accompanies automated decision making, and the complete erosion of digital privacy, there’s no question that AI opens a raft of new considerations for campaigners working on everything from digital privacy to human rights.
This workshop presentation was presented by experts, Glen Berman and Charlotte Bradley, at FWD+Organise 2019 hosted by Australian Progress in Sydney on 5-6 December 2019.
The session introduced two frameworks and a case study for each framework. The slides from the session include:
- What is AI? It’s not one thing.
- Machine Learning (= pattern recognition)
- Infrastructure & Resources
- Case study: Healthcare algorithms
- Using machine learning
- Working with AI: When Machine Learning is good, and not good, for users
- Working with AI: Reward Functions
- Putting it into practice
