Covering AI and Surveillance Technology
October 21, 2020 | Grantee News | Technology in the Public Interest

The use of algorithmic decision-making tools is on the rise across our institutions, from criminal justice and education to public benefits and health care. Communities most impacted by AI surveillance have limited oversight and power over the algorithms that judge them, and journalists have an important role in keeping communities informed about the technology that impacts their lives. Hannah Sassaman of grantee Movement Alliance Project, Rashida Richardson of Rutgers Law School, and Inioluwa Deborah Raji of grantee Mozilla Foundation joined a MacArthur-sponsored panel at the annual Online News Association conference to discuss how journalists can investigate and report on the use of AI and surveillance technologies in their communities for greater transparency and accountability.
