Event Information

Women Reclaiming AI (WRAI) is an expanding activist art-work, a collaborative community and a programme of participatory workshops for and with self-identifying women. It is a response to the pervasive depiction of AI as female, subordinate and serving by largely white, western, straight and male development teams. It aims to reclaim female representation and voices in future AI systems, challenging gender (miss) representation and the pervasive lack of diversity (gender, sexuality, ethnicity, etc) within AI development. It does so by empowering women to harness conversational AI as a medium for protest.

This project is created by artists-technologists Coral Manton and Birgitte Aga.

WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION
We will create an AI assistant that better reflects female identity, using a corpus of inspirational speech from people taking part and other women the collective admire. The workshop will provide you with basic skills to create an Ai voice assistant in Dialogflow (a development platform for conversational systems) and a space to facilitate talking, sharing and listening.

By taking part in the workshop you become part of the expanding Women Reclaiming AI activist art-work and collaborative community – a symbol of collective action and protest.

No previous experience of coding is required but participants are asked to bring a laptop if they have access to one.
