Dr. Joy Buolamwini, an MIT researcher, has written a new book called “Unmasking AI: My Mission to Protect What Is Human in a World of Machines” warning about the risks of artificial intelligence. She has been a leader in exposing biases in AI technology, particularly in facial recognition programs used by law enforcement agencies. Through her research at MIT, she found that these programs were inaccurate and biased, disproportionately affecting people of color and women. In her book, she discusses how racism, sexism, and other forms of discrimination can overlap in AI technology and make certain groups vulnerable. Buolamwini argues that racial justice and gender equality cannot be achieved without algorithmic justice. She emphasizes the importance of ensuring that AI technology is inclusive and serves all people, not just the privileged few. She also believes that the heart of computing is humanity and that human essence and experiences cannot be replaced by machines. In her book, she calls for the prevention of algorithmic discrimination and invites people to join the conversation about AI and its impact on society.
