In the evening salon "Zwischenraum" of the Hamburg bar HADLEY's, Katharina Mosene
talks about how discriminatory artificial intelligence (AI) is. While on the one hand AI raises great hopes, on the other hand it has long been clear that prejudices and inequalities are reflected in the code. For example, biometric facial recognition can poorly identify Black people and People of Color because it relies predominantly on training datasets of White people. AI applications also rely in many cases on data that underrepresents women* and marginalized groups. This means that they are less predictive of the future than they are of the past and the structures of discrimination inscribed in it.
So how much power are we granting machines without seriously understanding how decisions are actually made within these systems, and at what cost? Who is involved in the development of artificially intelligent systems? And what responsibility do we, as a society, have for the discourse on the use of AI in socially sensitive areas?
