Landecker Fellow Ayden Férdeline is a speaker on an upcoming panel organized by Amnesty International and Fight for the Future present.
The event titled “Human Rights and Generative AI for Activists” will take place virtually on September 21, 2023 at 2pmET.
The panel will include technologists, researchers, and activists, who will converse about the various ways that new and emerging technologies risk amplifying inequality.
Indeed, “corporations, governments and international and multilateral institutions are increasingly reliant on algorithmic decisions,” the organizers introduce the event’s topic.
“Opaque algorithms determine everything from what you see on social media to who is eligible for government benefits. Yet these algorithms and artificial intelligence systems, including generative AI, are neither neutral nor objective—they often reflect existing societal inequities,” the program further explains.
Panelists will include:
- Eliza Campbell, Technology and Inequality Researcher at Amnesty International
- Amos Toh, Senior Researcher, Artificial Intelligence and Human Rights at Human Rights Watch
- Gabrielle Rejouis, Advocate for Worker Privacy at United 4 Respect
- Ayden Férdeline, Researcher and Policy Analyst
Ayden is one of thirty 2022-2023 Landecker Democracy Fellows. This fellowship, a collaboration between the Alfred Landecker Foundation and Humanity in Action, was created to strengthen a new generation of leaders whose approaches to political and social challenges can become catalysts for democratic placemaking and community building.
