Automating Inequality – Virginia Eubanks

Good intentions and objective artificial intelligence can still lead to oppression:

In Automating Inequality, Virginia Eubanks systematically investigates the impacts of data mining, policy algorithms, and predictive risk models on poor and working-class people in America.

“… automated systems control which neighborhoods get policed, which families attain needed resources, and who is investigated for fraud. While we all live under this new regime of data analytics, the most invasive and punitive systems are aimed at the poor.”

Note: This is not happening in Ontario yet. But it has already begun in the USA.

Survivors can learn and shape this as a community. Otherwise, AI could be a tool of social service rationing & inequity & oppression.
