Veena Dubal is an unlikely star in the tech world. A scholar of labor practices regarding the taxi and ride-hailing industries and an Associate Professor at San Francisco’s U.C. Hastings College of the Law, her work on the ethics of the gig economy has been covered by the New York Times, NBC News, New York Magazine, and other publications. … At the annual symposium of the AI Now Institute, an interdisciplinary research center at New York University [Tandon School of Engineering], Dubal was a featured speaker.
