In this talk, Anna Lauren Hoffmann interrupts the idea of "potential" in AI ethics discourse. She traces the ways it idealizes AI's development and forestalls certain critical—and especially queer—engagements with the historical and present violences perpetuated by data science and technology.

Speaker Bio: Anna Lauren Hoffmann is an Assistant Professor at The Information School, University of Washington. Her writing on data, technology, and ethics has appeared in New Media & Society, Information, Communication, & Society, The Library Quarterly, and The Los Angeles Review of Books.

This event is hosted by the Faculty of Information & Media Studies at Western University and co-sponsored by Ryerson University and Concordia University.
