NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, the NYU Center for Responsible AI, and the 370 Jay Project invite you to a discussion on games in the series “Co-Opting AI.” Quests for innovation, particularly technological innovation, seem to always be closely tied to different systems of ideas and ideals. Artificial intelligence in particular is bound up in narratives and theories of progress, prosperity, and the superiority of the human race. Many of these ideologies influence public policy and even geopolitical relations. The “Co-Opting AI: Ideology” event sets out to examine how these ideals fuel the rise of AI, how they are bound up in histories of rule making, counting, and bureaucracy, how they are built on Western ontologies and perpetuate Western power structures.
