Women Reclaiming AI invites you to take part in a workshop designing an alternative AI Voice Assistant created by a growing community of self-identifying women (trans, intersex and cis) and all nonbinary, agender and gender variant people.
Birgitte Aga (NO) & Coral Manton (UK)
The work of artist-technologist duo Birgitte Aga and Coral Manton manifests as collaborative workshops, events and installations aimed at(re)claiming conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems as a medium for protest. It critiques the commercial pursuit of humanising AI technologies and challenges the bias, stereotyping and pervasive influence embedded within. By activating the public, Aga and Manton re-write and re-imagine the cultural myths of AI and robotics, creating alternative technology-mediated futures.
Their most recent work is Women Reclaiming Ai (2019), an expanding activist art-work, presented as a feminist AI voice assistant, programmed through workshops by a growing community of self-identifying women, and The Infinite Guide (2018), a speculative art work and research project, powered by a conversational AI, (LSTM Recurrent Neural Net), trained on a biased and non-diverse data-set.
