Join us for the Love Data Week virtual keynote presentation by Lauren F. Klein, author of "Data Feminism" (MIT Press, 2020).
In "Data Feminism", Klein and her coauthor Catherine D'Ignazio established a set of principles for doing more just and equitable data science. Informed by the past several decades of intersectional feminist activism and critical thought, the principles of data feminism modeled how to examine and challenge power, rethink binaries and hierarchies, elevate emotion and embodiment, consider context, embrace pluralism, and make labor visible. How can these principles be applied to the current conversation about AI, its present harms, and its future possibilities? This talk will briefly summarize the principles of data feminism before moving to a set of examples that show how these principles can be applied–and extended–to our current technological landscape.
This event is open to all. Please register to receive the Zoom link.
