Not only do we live and breathe this subject, but these three activist organizations are bringing some world changing ideas and feminist principles to the table. Socialising the idea of Feminist AI designed with inclusion at the core of the code, and building prototypes with concrete research that needs to be shared in order to be used, improved, iterated, replicated, and inspire the the inter-disciplinary, inter-regional inter-operative collaborations needed to bring the technology we need in order to leave no one behind.
We actively work daily with a large global multi disciplinary team ranging from Bangkok to Cairo, Geneva to Mexico City and San Jose with fellow travellers in Manila, Jakarta, Kampala, Dakar, Abuja, Cape Town, and Buenos Aires from computer science, machine learning, NLP, anthropology, economics, behavioural psychology, STS, social work, development and activists in indigenous rights, workers rights, and women’s rights.. We are social scientists, technologists, policy wonks, and activists.
