      AI Ethics: Discrimination in the Systems - Gender, Race, Class, & Power

      Interested in discussing how we can mitigate AI's systematic amplification of societal inequalities? Read these before you come: Primary reading: Discriminating Systems - Gender, Race, and Power in AI Optional reading: Anatomy of an AI System Our meetups use a flipped classroom model: You do the reading(s) before showing up to the event. When you show up, we split up into groups to discuss and take notes. Afterward, we reconvene to share our findings with the larger group. We (the Montreal AI Ethics Institute) are teaming up with the Feminist and Accessible Publishing and Communications Technologies to host an AI Ethics meetup at McGill University on the topic of discriminating systems. This is an important topic to discuss because algorithms tend to amplify societal biases and injustices; this happens for gender, race, class, and social inequality.  *NOTE: The specific location (at McGill University) and guiding questions will be sent out later. About us: The Montreal AI Ethics Institute seeks to help define humanity’s place in a world increasingly characterized and driven by algorithms. MAIEI does this by creating tangible and applied technical and policy research in the ethical, safe and inclusive development of AI.
