Social and Ethical Challenges of Artificial Intelligence: Danah Boyd

As big data and artificial intelligence become commonplace, Microsoft Research’s Danah Boyd knows that we must ask tough questions about the ethics of these new technologies.

In this video, Danah compares the proliferation of algorithms and machine learning to the emergence of nuclear energy decades ago, which gives her hope that we will find viable governance structures for nation-states and corporations as they use these new tools. But she also knows that we are only seeing the beginning of how this technology will scale and how humans will be able to manipulate it.

In this video, Danah Boyd of Data & Society discusses how society can come together to engage AI systems that reduce, rather than exacerbate, social challenges.
