Join Kate Crawford, Research Professor of Communication and STS, Senior Principal Researcher, USC Annenberg, Microsoft Research for a Tanner Seminar Discussion on the topic of Excavating “Ground Truth” in AI: Epistemologies and Politics in Training Data. This event follows Crawford’s lecture on the same topic on March 3, 2022 and includes commentary by Marion Fourcade, Angjoo Kanazawa and Trevor Paglen.

In this lecture, Kate Crawford will share new work that reflects on what’s at stake in the architecture and contents of training sets, and how they are increasingly part of our urban, legal, logistical, and commercial infrastructures. Professor Crawford’s lecture is one of seven special Obert C. Tanner Lectures on Artificial Intelligence and Human Values. The six other participating universities in this series are Stanford University, University of Utah, University of Michigan, Yale University, Oxford University, and Cambridge University.

This virtual event will be available to UC Berkeley students, faculty, staff and the greater Berkeley community virtually via live-stream video on the lecture webpage.
