Book launch: AI for Everyone? Critical Perspectives

About this event

We are entering a new era of technological determinism and solutionism in which governments and business actors are seeking data-driven change, assuming that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is now inevitable and ubiquitous. But we have not even started asking the right questions, let alone developed an understanding of the consequences. Urgently needed is debate that asks and answers fundamental questions about power. This book brings together critical interrogations of what constitutes AI, its impact and its inequalities in order to offer an analysis of what it means for AI to deliver benefits for everyone.

To celebrate the publication of AI for Everyone? Critical Perspectives, join its editor Pieter Verdegem and a panel of its contributors to discuss some of the key contemporary themes in this exciting area. Panelists will include Willian Araújo, Angela Daly, Lina Dencik, Rafael Grohmann, Dan McQuillan, Jenna Ng, Carrie O'Connell, Rainer Rehak, James Steinhoff, with more speakers to be confirmed.

AI for Everyone? Critical Perspectives is published open access by the University of Westminster Press.
