The Indigenous Protocol and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Working Group develops new conceptual and practical approaches to building the next generation of A.I. systems.
The working group is interested the following questions:
From an Indigenous perspective, what should our relationship with A.I. be?
How can Indigenous epistemologies and ontologies contribute to the global conversation regarding society and A.I.?
How do we broaden discussions regarding the role of technology in society beyond the largely culturally homogeneous research labs and Silicon Valley startup culture?
How do we imagine a future with A.I. that contributes to the flourishing of all humans and non-humans?
The Working Group has held two workshops to date, one in March and another in May of 2019. The workshops laid the foundation for the Position Paper on Indigenous Protocol and Artificial Intelligence, published in August of 2020.
Resources is a collection of readings the organizers drew upon to develop the workshops as well as texts suggested by the participants. We encourage others to explore these texts to find inspiration as we have.
