Feminist Artificial Intelligence (AI) describes an inclusive, intersectional approach to lift the potential of AI to create equality and a better life for all. It particularly focuses on the role of women, LGBTIQ+, and other marginalized and underrepresented groups regardless of their gender, age, religion and belief, disability, sexual identity, ethnicity, and appearance.
The feminist AI approach seeks to establish a contemporary and holistic relationship between human-machine systems and machine-machine systems.
It focuses on overcoming patriarchal structures, systemic privileges, and power imbalances in society, politics, and economy.
Through a feminist approach, AI can be a driver of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and make a critical contribution to a more sustainable future. Feminist AI should be understood as part of the effort to achieve the SDGs.
Philosophers (i.e. Harari) have been pointing out the opportunities and risks of digitalisation and technologization for years. Now it’s about helping to shape this development and setting the values for decision making in social-technology projects.
But Feminist AI goes further than that
