Decolonizing AI - Civil Society Perspectives on Breaking Digital Extractivism

Zoom Room 7B

While artificial intelligence is primarily developed in the Global North, its impacts are far-reaching. Today’s conversations around responsible AI, however, are generally confined to US/Canadian and European borders. To prevent adverse impacts of AI in the Global South, local representatives must not only be included in, but also drive, conversations around research priorities, definitions, and deployment of AI. Participants will feature representatives from across Africa, Asia, and Latin America, with an emphasis on civil society and inclusivity. Questions will revolve around ‘What are examples of digital colonialism in the age of AI?’, ‘What are some of the key human rights impacts in the Global South?’, ’, ‘How do you balance power differentials between stakeholder groups?’, ‘What is the role of funding?’, ‘How do you ensure that womxn and underrepresented groups participate in the decision-making process?’, and ‘What is the responsibility of technology companies, both foreign and local?’.
