Racial Representation and Systemic Transformation with Timnit Gebru

How do we respond to the racism in the world we have been given? What does it mean to transform technology systems in the spirit of justice and equity? How do we engage with diversity and representation without reducing our efforts to simple branding and lip service? To answer these questions and more the Radical AI Podcast welcomes one of our heroes Dr Timnit Gebru to the show. Timnit Gebru is a research scientist at Google on the ethical AI team and a co-founder of Black in AI. Timnit previously did her postdoc at Microsoft Research for the FATE (Fairness Transparency Accountability and Ethics in AI) group, where she studied algorithmic bias and the ethical implications underlying any data mining project. She received her PhD from the Stanford Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, studying computer vision under Fei-Fei Li. Full show notes for this episode can be found at Radical AI.

About Radical AI:

Hosted by Dylan Doyle-Burke, a PhD student at the University of Denver, and Jessie J Smith, a PhD student at the University of Colorado Boulder, Radical AI is a podcast featuring the voices of the future in the field of Artificial Intelligence Ethics.

Radical AI lifts up people, ideas, and stories that represent the cutting edge in AI, philosophy, and machine learning. In a world where platforms far too often feature the status quo and the usual suspects, Radical AI is a breath of fresh air whose mission is “To create an engaging, professional, educational and accessible platform centering marginalized or otherwise radical voices in industry and the academy for dialogue, collaboration, and debate to co-create the field of Artificial Intelligence Ethics.”

Through interviews with rising stars and experts in the field we boldly engage with the topics that are transforming our world like bias, discrimination, identity, accessibility, privacy, and issues of morality.
