Timnit Gebru: Is AI racist and antidemocratic? | Talk to Al Jazeera

by News Update

Artificial intelligence has become an essential part of our life, though some say there is another more sinister side to it.

Computer scientist Timnit Gebru has been one of the most critical voices against the unethical use of AI.

Considered one of the 100 most influential people of 2022 by Time magazine, Google asked Gebru to co-lead its unit focused on ethical artificial intelligence.

But the tech giant fired her after she criticised the company’s lucrative AI work.

Who is behind AI technology? Whose interests does it serve? And how democratic is its use?

Timnit Gebru talks to Al Jazeera.

🇯🇵 💭 HIROSHIMA 🗯️ 🤔

Today marks 77 years since the devastation suffered in Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. Every year, about 10 million “orizuru” origami cranes are donated to Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park from around the world
and now earthhiroshima is harnessing these hopeful symbols for its Re:ORIZURU project. Each crane is taken apart, color coded, and dissolved to make "recycled orizuru paper" for stationary, etc. Exquisitely designed with local creators, these eco-friendly items are crafted to further the cranes’ enduring message of global peace .
