Let’s come together for an Un-Bookclub book Algorithms of Oppression social at NeurIPS. We’ve been learning a lot from the discussions in the cross-continental book club that we’ve been running out of this book by the celebrated UCLA Professor Dr. Safyia Umoja Noble. We’d love to give you the gift of connection, conversation, and reflection Dr. Noble gave us. We’ll briefly introduce the author’s ideas and do hands-on exercises to seed discussions about the human impact of AI and search engines in our lives. There is no prework for this social and you are not expected to have read the book to participate in the exercises and discussions.
