The Nanny State

The Nanny State is a workshop using design justice practices to explore the impact of surveillance and artificial intelligence on the labor industry, particularly on domestic workers, e.g., nannies and housekeepers. The use of artificial intelligence or AI in the labor sector is pervasive, there are examples of employers tracking labor productivity, health status, and replacing core job activities among others. AI is capturing the employee’s digital footprint while simultaneously attempting to predict the employee’s next move. This is a project sprint from the "AI IRL Hackathon - Building Trustworthy AI".
