They are the software programs that enable:
- Mortgage brokers to make loan determinations
- Police forces know who to arrest and much more
Researchers have found algorithms express bias Black against people.
As an Afro futurist organization, we center the unique needs of Black people as we think about building the tech sector we want.
We value safe spaces for Black and other under represented groups to work on building an anti-racist, feminist tech sector.
We don’t talk about it, we be about it. AI for the People engages in research backed interventions to change corporate practices and develop federal level policies that protect Black and other members of the protected classes from technical harm.
AI for the People values relationships with BIPOC leaders and allies across state, local and international communities, academia, government and advocacy to dismantle automated anti-Blackness in tech and break down institutional racism. It will take ALL of us to solve this problem not just the learned few.
Life is hard. Therefore we resist racism in tech sector, through building communities centered in joy.
