February 02, 2021 Co-Opting AI: Security

NYU’s Institute for Public Knowledge, the NYU Center for Responsible AI, and the 370 Jay Project invite you to a discussion on finance in the series “Co-Opting AI.” Narratives, policies, and innovations in AI are often tied up with notions of “security”. While our increasingly AI-mediated social world is vulnerable to different forms of cyber threats, “security” also serves as justification for large-scale surveillance of already over-policed and oppressed communities. The event will feature Laura Norén, Ram Shankar Siva Kumar, Newton Campbell, and Mona Sloane and will examine links between the topics of algorithmic harm, national security, and cybersecurity, and to ask what – or who – counts as “risk” or as “threat” in the context of AI.
