Artificial intelligence (AI) holds great potential to benefit society, enabling greater efficiency, equity, and reach. But, utilization of biased training data and ill-considered algorithms can undermine social gains by perpetuating and reinforcing social injustices. While AI-enabled systems have been shown to have these negative effects, it is important to also consider how AI and intelligent tools can be applied to power some of the most innovative solutions to society’s most pressing challenges — from democratic engagement to humanitarian aid and digital inclusion.
Equidad Digital brings together leading practitioners and scholars to discuss the social and human rights impacts of AI-enabled systems in the Mexico-U.S. context and to support the development of interdisciplinary research and capacity building.
