DATA JOURNALISM with MEREDITH BROUSSARD - Session 2 of "Ethics of Data Curation"
The Rutgers Critical AI Initiative, jointly sponsored by the Center for Cultural Analysis (CCA) and the Center for Cognitive Science (RuCCS), and in collaboration with Australian National University presents the second session of an NEH-sponsored workshop, "Ethics of Data Curation."

For this meeting on DATA JOURNALISM, Meredith Broussard, Research Director at the NYU Alliance for Public Interest Technology and author of the award-winning book, Artificial Unintelligence: How Computers Misunderstand the World (MIT, 2018), will speak to us about about public interest technology, artificial intelligence, & social justice. Broussard looks at the inner workings and outer limits of technology, and explains why we should never assume that computers always get things right. Making a case against “technochauvinism”—the belief that technology is always the solution—Broussard looks at why facial recognition amplifies racism, why algorithms reproduce inequality, and why social problems persist in every digital Utopia. If we understand the limits of what we can do with technology, Broussard tells us, we can make better choices about what we should do with it to achieve algorithmic justice.
