This course is being offered in spring 2021 at the Department of Computer Science at Aalto University, led by Prof. Nitin Sawhney, Sid Rao, Henriette Friis and Natalia Villaman.
The course critically examines the role of Artificial Intelligence (AI), autonomous systems, and data-centric technologies in society. We will interrogate these concerns using cross-disciplinary theories and practices embedded in the ethics of AI, intersectional feminist perspectives, Global South and indigenous experiences, as well as civic debates and human rights discourses. The goal is to reveal the socio-political implications for protest, surveillance, democratic participation, misinformation, gender and racial equity, civic engagement and social justice. >> Learn more
