KEYNOTE | Shifting narratives of AI: Confronting tech's Power
As increasingly dire prognoses about AI’s future take over headlines about generative AI, it’s time for the public and regulators to ensure that there is nothing about artificial intelligence (and the industry that powers it) that we need to accept as given.
In her keynote, Dr. Sarah Myers West, award-winning researcher and Managing Director of the AI Now Institute, will offer a material analysis of AI, underscoring dependencies on the exploitation of both material and creative resources by the extractivist practices of corporate power structures. Defying both utopian and dystopian visions driven by the current hype train, Dr. West will underline what we need to confront tech power and shape alternative trajectories.
