Adventures in Renaming

Deadnamed by an AI

Governments and corporations will trust AI to make judgements on people's identities. If those systems are trained on cis- and hetero-normative data sets, you'll have AI that consistently misgenders people, and could be locking trans and queer people out of bathrooms, offices, homes, transportation, and medical care. Alyx Baldwin explains the problem and what companies and developers have to do in order to not build machine bias into their systems.
