Mona Sloane


Mona Sloane is a sociologist working on design and inequality, specifically in the context of AI design and policy. She is a Senior Research Scientist at the NYU Center for Responsible AI and the Director of the *This Is Not A Drill* program on technology, inequality and the climate emergency at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts. This talk will examine the intersection of design, inequality, and artificial intelligence (AI). It will map out the infrastructural nature of AI systems and examine where and how they mediate the ways in which we organize society – positioning systemic AI harm as an issue of design inequality.
