Our work aims to do two things: Mitigate/disrupt/eliminate/slow down harms caused by AI technology, and cultivate spaces to accelerate imagination and creation of new technologies and tools to build a better future.
We use quantitative and qualitative methodologies to equip historically marginalized groups with data to advocate for change. See below for some of our projects.
Analyzing the impacts of South African apartheid using computer vision techniques and satellite imagery. Read our NeurIPS paper and check out our dataset and visualizations (coming soon).
Creating natural language processing tools, and using qualitative methods to analyze the impacts of social media platforms on neglected countries and languages (more soon).
We build frameworks for non-exploitative community rooted research practice, including our projects below.
We imagine new technological futures reflective of everyone being able to see themselves centered in design, safety, joy, and beyond margins and borders.
We publish interdisciplinary work uncovering and mitigating the harms of current AI systems, and research, tools and frameworks for the technological future we should build instead.
