What might embodied knowledge contribute to the creation of ethical practices in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology development? How can this be informed from the perspective of bodies that are different?

The Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE) invites you to explore these questions in the context of an informal roundtable discussion moderated by C-DaRE researchers Kate Marsh and Scott deLahunta. They will be joined by Alison Powell (Director) and Louise Hickman from the JUST AI (Joining Up Society and Technology in AI) network and Marco Gillies and colleagues from the immersive indie design project 4i, including C-DaRE 4i Co-Investigator Ruth Gibson. Tom Medak from the Centre for Postdigital Cultures is invited to provide a response. We will also be joined by other C-DaRE and various Research Centre colleagues.

JUST AI is a new independent network, supported by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Ada Lovelace Institute; the network invites new ways of thinking about data and AI ethics and collaborates to address ethics as practice.

4i is an EPSRC funded project that explores interactive machine learning and aims to enable independent and diverse developers and artists to design and implement movement-based interaction.

This event is suitable for anyone interested in the ethical development and use of data-driven technology including scholars, scientists, engineers, creative coders, performers and media artists.

This event is part of the C-DaRE Invites... series. If you are interested in joining this event please email cdare.fah@coventry.ac.uk
