S.T.O.P. - a local organization in the Electronic Frontier Alliance, (not EFF) will host this event:

Artificial Intelligence & Algorithms: How we train surveillance tools

From the Organizers:

What is artificial intelligence? What is an algorithm, really, and how does it work? In this conversation, three speakers unpack how artificial intelligence is built, question the intelligence we project onto statistical calculations, and explore the ways that existing social relations are reproduced in the very algorithms often intended to remove human fallibility and emotions.

Featuring panelists Meredith Whittaker, Co-founder and Co-director, AI Now Institute, NYU, and Chris Gilliard, writer, professor, and speaker; and others to be announced.
