Intersectionality and Design for Responsible AI

Mar 16, 2021

10:15am – 11:10am CT

Getting beyond the clichés of AI requires updating our approaches to design. By taking an intersectional approach -- one that considers the compounding effects of discriminations at the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and more -- we can design more equitably. We can challenge power structures, fight systemic discrimination, and offer not only a seat at the table, but new ways of getting to (at staying at) the table in the first place. This seasoned panel offers insight from design leaders at Capital One, Microsoft, and Carnegie Mellon University who will share experience, common vocabulary, and ground rules for intersectional and responsible AI innovation.
