Last week there was an article published by the Guardian on the transference of racial and gender prejudices from human programmers to AI systems. Since technology has become central to our lived experiences, it is evermore necessary to examine the relationship between human and machine and their mutual affects.
I propose a talk(?) session on working collaboratively to combat prejudice in the digital age through humanist approaches to technological design and application.
