Prominent AI expert Kate Crawford set to deliver UNSW Wallace Wurth lecture
Kate Crawford is a Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Technology, Culture and Society at NYU Tandon.
New York University Professor and AI commentator Kate Crawford will share her account of the new form of data extractivism and its far reaching consequences when she returns to UNSW for the Wallace Wurth Lecture on 9 December. Crawford will draw on her experience as Co-Director and Co-Founder of the AI Now Institute at New York University, the world's first university institute dedicated to researching the social implications of artificial intelligence. Using Amazon’s voice-controlled speaker as an example, she will ponder the wider system of extraction that makes AI systems work and the social and environmental consequences of this.
