IBM, Microsoft, and Amazon Disavow Facial Recognition Technology: What Do You Need to Know? with Deb Raji

What does it mean that IBM, Microsoft, Amazon, and others have distanced themselves from developing facial recognition technology and providing facial recognition data to vendors? Should you be skeptical? Where is the hope? To answer these questions and more we welcome Deb Raji to the show.

Deb is a tech fellow at the AI Now Institute Working on critical perspectives to evaluation practice in AI, conducting audits on deployed AI systems and facial recognition, and AI auditing policy. She has worked closely with the Algorithmic Justice League initiative and on several projects to highlight cases of bias in computer vision. Deb was named one of MIT Technology Review’s 35 Innovators Under 35 for her research on the harms of racially biased data in facial recognition technologies.

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.
