The Indigenous Protocol and Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) Workshops will develop new conceptual and practical approaches to building the next generation of A.I. systems.
The workshops will address 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 first workshop took place March 1 - 2, 2019, at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa in Honolulu, HI. It brought together thirty Indigenous and non-Indigenous scholars and artists to discuss the questions above. A subset of the first workshop attendees will participate in a writing workshop in May, 2019 to compose a position paper capturing the outcomes of these conversations.
