Antiracism within AI research

Despite what we learn about scientific neutrality and objectivity, science has a long history of legitimising and perpetuating racism. This history plays an important role in how we understand the state of AI research, and how it’s actively shaping power dynamics in the AI research and development community. This session explores how AI researchers can use anti racist tools and frameworks to reject harm as an inevitable byproduct of scientific progress, and to create better ways of working and being in this field.
