This episode features Dr. Timnit Gebru, the founder and executive director of the Distributed Artificial Intelligence Research Institute (DAIR), an interdisciplinary and global AI research institute rooted in the belief that AI is not inevitable, its harms are preventable, and when its production and deployment include diverse perspectives and deliberate processes it can be beneficial. In this episode, Hilary and Dr. Gebru discuss how an inclusive and collaborative approach to creating AI systems can address the uneven benefits and harmful impacts of technology on society.
