Flights & Rights - Creating Community-Centric Technology Policy

Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - 6:00pm to 8:00pm
Flights & Rights is our monthly community series featuring important civil rights issues and great beer in the KEXP Studios Gathering Space!

Technology & Liberty Project Manager Jennifer Lee discussed how in a context of deep, structural inequity, surveillance technologies have always disproportionately impacted marginalized communities.

Now, the power of these technologies are amplified by AI-based automated decision-making tools. These technologies are often built without community impacts or values in mind. Every technology is only as good as the power structure around it—and unfortunately, tech often amplifies, rather than fixes, inequalities in that structure.
