The first cohort of AHRC/Ada-funded JUST AI Fellows present their work and discuss strategies for advocating for racial justice in the field of data and AI ethics. Their approach is specific to the ongoing challenges presented in the UK and the EU to mobilising and promoting social change.
Drawing on each of the Fellows’ work, this panel will address the need to create intersectional spaces to foster a network of solidarity. How do we build and sustain these networks? What are the immediate and long-term stakes involved in realising structural change? How does interdisciplinary work support these changes?
Chair: Carly Kind, Director, Ada Lovelace Institute.
