Virtual Town Hall with Senator Connie Leyva – Is Artificial Intelligence Reinforcing Injustice?
March 8 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm PST
Most of us want our personal information to be safe.
Yet today, many large corporations collect and profit from our personal, often private, information without us knowing who has it or what they are doing with it. Data gathering, used for artificial intelligence (AI) applications, is done as part of their business model, not for the public good.
Various corporations pull data from social media, our medical providers, when we fill out a credit application, or even as we pass by a video camera.
We can’t see what is being collected or fix it if it is wrong, yet it negatively impacts people (especially people of color) in the way it controls who gets hired, who gets arrested, who gets a loan, who gets accepted to college, and what medical treatment is given or withheld.
We can join together and insist our leaders protect our personal information. In the same way we asked for and got regulations that ensure manufacturers build safer cars, we can get regulations that allow us to see and control our personal information.
