How many times a day do you interact with AI in your everyday things? Four leading figures in the future of AI discuss the responsibilities and opportunities for designers using data as material to create social impact through a more inclusive design of products and services. When considering the future of design leveraging artificial intelligence, the mantra can no longer be “move fast and break things”. Featuring: Jennifer Bove, Head of Design for B2B Payments, Capital One Dr. Jamika D. Burge, Head of AI Design Insights, Capital One Co-Founder, blackcomputeHER Ruth Kikin-Gil, Responsible AI strategist and Senior UX Designer, Microsoft Molly Wright Steenson, Senior Associate Dean for Research, College of Fine Arts, Carnegie Mellon University Dive deeper into this issue: https://onblend.tealeaves.com/diversity-bias-ethics-in-ai/ Register for future Nature X Design Events: https://onblend.tealeaves.com/naturexdesign/​ Get to know TEALEAVES Our Sustainability: ​https://www.tealeaves.com/pages/our-ethos Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/TealeavesCo​​ Twitter: http://www.twitter.com/TealeavesCo​​ Instagram: http://www.instagram.com/TealeavesCo
The latest episode of the Disruptive Technologies Research Cluster at the University of Salford, hosted by Dr Alex Fenton and Prof Andy Miah
The third edition of the roundtable on ethics of Artificial Intelligence (AI), organized on 26 March 2021, focused on the role of cultural diversity in shaping the future of AI. How can cultural diversity and the multiplicity of ethical frameworks shape the future of AI? How do the different values embraced in each culture, such as specific views and relationships with nature and with technology could contribute to the shaping of tomorrow’s AI? What are the challenges to be overcome when establishing a global ethical framework for AI? The roundtable was moderated by Peter-Paul Verbeek (The Netherlands), Professor of Philosophy of Technology at the University of Twente, and Chairperson of UNESCO World Commission on the Ethics of Scientific Knowledge and Technology (COMEST). Invited speakers were: Sheila Jasanoff (United States), Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies at Harvard University, John F. Kennedy School of Government; Jason Edward Lewis (Canada), University Research Chair in Computational Media and the Indigenous Future Imaginary and Professor of Computation Arts at Concordia University, Montreal. Co-director of the Indigenous Protocol and Artificial Intelligence Working Group; Shoko Suzuki (Japan), Professor at Kyoto University, Graduate School of Education. This event is part of a series of roundtables launched by UNESCO in 2018 to sensitize policy-makers, researchers and the general public on the ethical implications of AI.
In her captivating talk, Tess Posner, CEO AI4ALL talks about the diversity and inclusion and her team’s efforts to create pathways for underrepresented K-12 students to chart a future in the artificial intelligence field, through education programs and peer, mentor, and professional supports.

The world is in a period of revolutionary digital transformation that is driven by artificial intelligence and machine learning. But as AI’s uses become more widespread, an important question arises: who will be building these technologies? Currently, there is a diversity crisis in engineering – women and people of color make up only a small percentage of computer scientists, and their numbers appear to be even lower in the AI field. What are the implications if this massively important technology is fundamentally biased? And what can we do to bridge the gap? Eva Prakash is a rising senior and an advocate of diversity in artificial intelligence. She is the founder and CEO of Girl 2.0, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in California that is dedicated to closing the gender gap in technology by providing free computer science education to girls and other underrepresented minorities in STEM. The organization is focused on debunking the myth that coding is only for “white guys in hoodies” by rebranding what it means to be a computer scientist. Currently, Eva is a student researcher in computational biology at Stanford University, where she works on the interpretability of machine learning models for genomics.
