Artificial Intelligence, Communities of Color, and You
At its heart, AIandYou serves as a compendium for artificial intelligence news and information. One of our primary contributions comes in the form of content, in which we comb the web for pertinent news about AI and translate it into digestible, comprehensible synopses. We also produce a series of videos called Community Conversations, which feature recorded conversations between leaders in the AI community.
Engagement with AI and AI-related issues is largely absent in the communities where it’s needed most: places where automation and other AI-related tools are laying waste to employment opportunities and local economies. Part of what we AIandYou does is partner with leaders in the AI community to help mitigate the fear that communities. It also solicits advice from its team of advisors, as well as its impressive board of directors which is comprised of the attorney Nicole DeLeon, City Councilwoman Alicia C. Aguirre, and actress and philanthropist Eva Longoria.
And while AI is big issue with big ramifications, it’s not all bad. AIandYou also spends time illustrating the ways in which AI can be used for good: using algorithms to make combating climate change easier or improving the accuracy of diagnoses in medical settings.
We are proud to be along for the ride with Susan and the rest of the team at AIandYou — and we can’t wait to see what’s next.
