"“One of the arguments people like to make is that you can’t go back on particular technologies... “That’s patently untrue. No one would look at asbestos and say, ‘Well, you can’t outlaw chemistry.’ But they look at facial recognition and say, ‘You can’t outlaw math.' ”
"Automating that racist thing is not going to make it less racist." I wrote about @hypervisible and why he matters, with a little help from @ruchowdh, @BostonJoan, and @safiyanoble. washingtonpost.com/technolog…

i absolutely love, learn from and have so much respect for @hypervisible and am thrilled to see his scholarship amplified. I hope funders act accordingly as he’s 1000% the type of leadership we need in this space co-designing research and discourse with the community. Go Detroit!

Fairness frameworks concentrate power in the hands of service providers, giving them (and not lawmakers) the discretion to decide what counts as discrimination and what it means to address it. How about we explore other ways to evaluate and push back on AI based harms? Join us!
Seda Gürses talks about “Protective Optimization Technologies: a proposal for contestation in the world rather than fairness in the algorithm” on Monday Sept 20, 16:00 CET, at our #TAFF “Responsible Use of Data” event. See you there academicfringe.org/speakers/…! @sedyst @TUDelft_AI

Only 2 African countries have vaccinated more than 40% of their population, says @DrTedros at #Covid19 presser. “That's not because African countries don't have the capacity or the experience to roll out vaccines. It's because they have been left behind by the rest of the world."
