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.
Centering the experiences of data workers in machine learning by using the Workers' Inquiry approach (Data-Production Dispositif) to uncover opportunities for collaborative knowledge exchange and collective organizing.
Creating a wage-theft calculator to estimate how much workers are owed in lost wages that are stolen with the assistance of surveillance technologies. Watch Adrienne's talk.
We expose the real harms of AI systems while countering AI hype.
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.
