How do the values being built into AI affect our public and private lives now and into the future? What is the importance of a global human rights framework in driving discussions around the democratization of AI?

Join us this month on Justice Matters as host Sushma Raman talks with Dr. Annette Zimmermann, political philosopher at the University of York, and Technology and Human Rights fellow at the Carr Center. They discuss many of the ideas in Dr. Zimmermann’s forthcoming book, The Algorithmic is Political, where she argues that we should resist the view that AI is value neutral. In this conversation, she lays out the scope and nature of algorithmic injustices, models for setting an agenda on regulating AI, and what it means to democratize AI in a climate rife with misinformation.
