We are at a critical turning point. In order to innovate and thrive in a rapidly changing global environment, new norms are needed.

The Problem

Particularly urgent given the scale at which Algorithmic Decision-Making (ADM) systems and machine learning are being deployed, we need Affirmative Action for Algorithms, to correct real life bias and barriers that prevent women from achieving their full participation and rights in the present, and in the future, we invent.

Call to action

We can either seize the moment to correct bias in the digital realm, as we tackle bias in the analog world, or condemn ourselves to old bias baked into the future century of Algorithmic Decision-Making (ADM) that is trained by machine learning on biased data sets.

The f<A+i>r Network

In this challenging moment the <A+> Alliance, supported by the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), has launched a Feminist AI Research network.

The use of AI will only accelerate moving forward, so we need to think about the future we want to see – both in driving the response to the COVID-19 crisis, and in creating an agenda for the future.

What’s happening now

<A+> Alliance is one of eighty selected projects at the 2021 Paris Peace Forum!

Systemic gender, racial and intersectional bias sits at the heart of current Artificial Intelligence (AI) and algorithmic decision-making (ADM) processes. Inclusive AI is designed with inclusion at the core to create new opportunities and correct inequities. Our selected initiative focuses on how new AI/ADM algorithms, models, networks, and systems can have a concrete & positive impact on social problems, improving quality of life and correcting historical exclusion. Prototypes use design justice principles, with the most effective prototypes boasting new public and private sector partnerships to actively innovate and correct historical inequities.
