"Unmasking AI: My Mission to Protect What Is Human in a World of Machines" by Joy Buolamwini

Submitted Jan 11, 2024

About the book

“Unmasking AI” delves beyond sensational headlines on Big Tech’s existential risks, narrating Joy Buolamwini’s discovery of the “coded gaze” – evidence of encoded discrimination in tech products. The book explores her journey and the founding of the Algorithmic Justice League to combat AI harms. Buolamwini applies an intersectional lens, revealing how racism, sexism, colorism, and ableism intersect, leaving large portions of humanity vulnerable in the AI-driven world. She emphasizes that computers reflect both human aspirations and limitations. Advocating for algorithmic justice, Buolamwini urges a collective effort, stating that the civil rights frontier demands inclusive AI accessible to all, not just the privileged few.
