Byte Into IT: Thao Phan on Studying Race, Gender, AI & Machine Learning through Art
Thao Phan is a feminist technoscience researcher who specialises in the study of gender and race in algorithmic culture. She joins Lilly and Dan to chat about the upcoming event she's co-curated, Study-In On AI + Race + Art, bringing together writers, researchers, artists, activitists, scientists, and critical thinkers of all kind for a day of study and speculative thinking.
The trio discuss why artistic and experimental interventions (such as collective study) are important for unpacking assumptions around race, gender, subjectivities, data-driven technologies, productivity, and society.
Expressions of Interest for the Study-in (2 December 2023, 10am-6.00pm) in Naarm/Melbourne are here.
The event is completely free with bursaries available.
The Study-in is a day interrogating these questions and is curated by Thao Phan, Andrew Brooks, and Joel Stern in collaboration with CoVA, Art + Australia, and the ARC Centre of Excellence for Automated Decision-Making & Society (ADM+S).
