The State of AI Ethics Report (January 2021) - Montreal AI Ethics Institute (MAIEI)
Publication/Creation DateJanuary 1 2021
DescriptionThe Montreal AI Ethics Institute (MAIEI) is an international non-profit organization democratizing AI ethics literacy, founded by Abhishek Gupta. This 2021 report states that, "The problems at the forefront of AI Ethics today – injustice, discrimination and retaliation – are battles that marginalized communities have been fighting for decades. It only took us millions of dollars and immense public interest into our darling technology to notice. Algorithms manifest and further exacerbate the structural inequalities in our society. We’re finally starting to see ‘bias’ – algorithmic or otherwise – for what it really is: a fundamentally human problem."
The report opens with the article "The Abuse and Misogynoir Playbook" by Katlyn Turner and colleagues at MIT, which discusses the work of Black women scholars including Safiya Noble, Ruha Benjamin, Timnit Gebru, and Joy Buolamwini.
This article is then followed by research summaries from multiple contributors on a large variety of topics such as algorithmic injustice, discrimination, ethical AI, labour impacts, misinformation, privacy, risk & security, and social media.
