Inclusive AI Policy: A Facilitated Discussion with Dr. Craig Watkins, MLK Visiting Scholar
March 11 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EST
The AI and machine learning future is high stakes — but to what extent do the public and its citizens understand those stakes?
We invite you to participate in this IDSS/TPP workshop to explore some of the critical AI policy and political issues facing society.
Much of the AI and data related conversations proceeds in ways that are exclusive and disconnected from the populations that stand the most to lose from algorithmic bias and discrimination. Current notions of fairness in AI are insufficient to deal with the inequities that drive the development and deployment of AI.
In this session, participants will have the opportunity to think collectively about the best ways to build a more accessible conversation around data and AI related rights.
MLK Visiting Professor S. Craig Watkins will draw from his own research and engagement with the MIT community to offer some initial perspectives that will establish a framework for the workshop’s ideation sessions.
The goal of the workshop is to help participants develop frameworks for research and policy related activities designed to empower communities to be more involved in shaping the future of artificial intelligence.
Register here; light refreshments will be served.
