Symposium: Encoding Futures: Speculative Blueprints for Critical AI
The virtual symposium invites participants to envision speculative futures for artificial intelligence articulated in the form of creative blueprints. Participants will imagine how both extant technologies and those not yet developed could contribute to just sociotechnical systems and visions of futurity. The primary criterion for the blueprints will be alignment with FAccT rubrics. I.e., the blueprint objective will be to visualize or materialize how technologies might operate toward fairness, accountability, transparency, and justice. The symposium gathers together a transdisciplinary set of participants including cultural workers, machine learning researchers, and media studies scholars to share their blueprints and conceptualize ways to engineer emerging technologies toward speculative outcomes.

Participants will include: Nancy Baker Cahill, Amir Baradaran, Fernando Diaz (co-organizer), Mashinka Firunts Hakopian (co-organizer), Suzanne Kite, Emily Martinez, Lauren Lee McCarthy, Niama Safia Sandy, Anuradha Vikram, and Claire Webb.
