Abeba Birhane, a specialist in the ethics of artificial intelligence, walks us through some of her latest research on the ethical and social considerations behind artificial intelligence (AI) as it is used the world over. Because human experience is fundamentally complex, ambiguous, and indeterminable, AI very often fails to accurately capture and predict human behavior. What is more, because of its attempts to generalize, we are learning that AI negatively affects marginalized people and communities to a disproportionate degree. Her talk illustrates this with a myriad of recent examples and challenge us to develop a healthy skepticism with regard to the widespread use of AI, all in hopes of creating a more just foundation for its future use.
