The Advancing Data Justice project is a Global Partnership on AI (GPAI) initiative, led by The Alan Turing Institute. Researchers from the Institute have been collaborating with twelve Policy Pilot Partner organisations from Asia, Oceania, Africa, and South America, and each of these have been working to understand what data justice might look like in their distinct contexts.

The aims of the project are 1) to gain a better understanding of the current state of research in the field to better inform future research directions, and 2) to create a guide for policymakers, developers, and communities affected by AI, comprising advice on what they should consider in their practice, use and experience of AI systems.

As part of the project, the team have recently launched the first instalment of a documentary series which tracks the work of the project partners. They discuss how data-driven technologies can be deployed in a way which is compatible with values of social justice.

In the three documentaries to come, the following topics will be considered in more detail:

  1. The human impact of past data injustices.
  2. The present issues facing data activists around the world.
  3. The future of the data justice movement, and the actions we must prioritise now.
