We are at a critical turning point. In order to innovate and thrive in a rapidly changing global environment, new norms are needed.
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 to incubate Feminist AI <From Paper to Prototype to Pilot>. In the first phase of the 2021-2024 project, we are launching a call for a first round of papers to explore new models and new ways of conceiving AI that correct for historic inequities and bring social programs and policy fit for the 21st century.
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.
