Goal:

  • Encourage diversity in AI, inspire creativity for humanistic and artistic applications of AI, and raise awareness for the Ethics of AI and its societal implications. 

  • Raise awareness of the societal implications of AI beyond classifying photo albums and recognizing speech commands. For instance, while algorithms that drive social media have the ability to connect people from all over the world, they can also be biased and exacerbate societal problems by feeding the fears of the vulnerable.
