With whom do we hybridise? Principle Agents of AI
Artificial Intelligence is a set of techniques facilitating our capacity to navigate the information spaces afforded by substantial improvements in digital technologies and infrastructures. But whose is this “our” – who is gaining in capacities and at what costs? In this talk I will review a sampling of AI impacts in the individual, national, and global spheres. I will present my recent research in transparency for and through AI, governance of those that produce AI, and the transnational dynamics that may be obscuring and even compromising our agency. I use this evidence to suggest that ultimately ethics and responsibility are only sensible framings for relationships between peers, and artefacts are never true peers with organisms.
