Hello, I would like to suggest this workshop, if you think it fits to the context:
ANTI RACIST ROBOT WORKSHOP
When we teach machines how to think - and this is what developing AI is about - we naturally reproduce our own mindsets. Not only precious knowledge is transfered, but also mistakes and prejudice. Theorists as Audre Lorde, Reni Eddo-Iodge and Joy Buolamwini have shown how e.g. our rassisms are deeply rooted in our thinking structures. In this workshop we want to look at these prejudices, blind spots and stereotypes and counter them with alternative, anti-discriminatory, anti-violent concepts - by developing machines ourselves. Let us build anti-rassist, feminist robots, even if they might not be much smarter, but hopefully a little less stupid then ourselves! Please bring a laptop, your Arduina, Sensors, old speakers or electro garbage and embarque to a femininst mini-hackathon!
