Artificial intelligence is increasingly shaping the future of information seeking, discovery, and curation. While AI may claim to make these practices easier, several scholars have been raising essential questions about the nature of this technology and its implications for racial justice, political polarization, and privacy in the information ecosystem.
The second session of the AI Infodemic: Interrogating Algorithms of Information Seeking reading group is focused on the theme of system design. Topics covered in this session include a basic overview of AI technology, design pedagogies, and racial bias within coding practices.
