Trevor Paglen at SXSW

Trevor Paglen will be at SXSW on March 9 in Austin, Texas. It will take place from 12:30 - 1:30 pm at the Fairmont Manchester CD and will be co-hosted with AI Now Institute co-founder and co-director Kate Crawford.

An excerpt from the SXSW programming schedule:

Are Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning really the right metaphors to address training sets that feed into automated processes? Kate Crawford and Trevor Paglen look into the production of training data and uncover the historical origins, labor practices, infrastructures, and epistemological assumptions, with biases and skews built into them from the outset.

The session is part of the "Intelligent Future" track. Other events in this track include "Futurist Meet Up," "A Magic Leap for (Virtual) Humanity: AI and Autism" and "Science Fiction or Future Science?"
