You’re welcome to join us for our next Data Ethics Club meeting on Wednesday 26th at 1-2 BST. You don’t need to register, just pop in. We’re going to be talking about ‘Living in the Hidden Realms of AI: The Workers Perspective’ which is about the experience of annotating data for a living on Mechanical Turk, and the workers’ recent moves towards unionisation.
Thank you to Vanessa Hanschke for suggesting this week’s content and questions!
There will be time to talk about whatever we like, relating to the paper, but here are some specific questions to think about while you’re reading.
How far down the pipeline should our ethical responsibility as data scientists reach?
What are better ways of recognising the contributions of annotators who are crucial to the existence of clean data sets and the products based on these data sets?
What are our future visions of labour in a world that is becoming more data and AI centric?
