Women+-Empowered ML


What would machine learning look like if it was truly feminist? In this talk, we'll re-imagine what machine learning, particularly generative models, could and would look like if they were women+-led and proactively feminist, and how that diverges from today's models. Then, we'll look at ways that could drive community-driven machine learning, building systems with more trust, more diverse input and more empowerment at their core.
