Mapping the algorithms that affect us all
We know by now how algorithms and AI transform and affect societies through their use in healthcare, the workspace, the justice system, in education and even in your neighbour's doorbell. But navigating this wealth of information is challenging for activists and civic organisations trying to organise the fight against the unaccountable uses of these systems. Existing frameworks do not categorise them in a way that is useful for, say, a community organiser or a legal defense organisation.
This session aims to build on the collective knowledge of participants to create a meaningful and actionnable categorisation of the algorithms and AI that affect us all. Using a mix of (virtual) sticky note writing and group discussion, we will name, sort, describe and categorise examples of algorithms and AI. From this work should emerge a framework useful for activists and civic organisations that can be developed further after the event.
