Talk title

AI on a Mission

Talk abstract

Technology companies and society as a whole are currently grappling with what it means to “do” AI in an ethical way.

In this talk, I’ll describe how researchers and designers at Wikimedia draw on the organization's mission and values to prioritize our AI work, inform our design process, and evaluate the impact of what we build for Wikipedia and the global Wikimedia movement.
