<A+> Alliance Co-Founder Renata Avila hosting a workshop at Stanford HAI

How can feminist methodologies and approaches be applied and be transformative when developing AI and ADM systems? Our Co-Founder, international lawyer Renata Avila is hosting a webinar about it next May 5th at Stanford HAI.

At the Prototyping feminist AI workshop Renata Avila, together with the attendees, will answer important questions. How 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.
