A Global and Transhistorical View of Artificial Intelligence: Labor and Rights

Friday, November 3, 2023 - 15:00 to 18:30


The Forum, Room 315 (West 125th Street and Broadway)

This panel discussion on issues typically overlooked in recent debates on artificial intelligence brings together leading scholars of AI's exploitative labor practices, and the embedded exclusionary injustices and uneven geographies.

The event marks the beginning of a robust conversation hosted by the Committee on Global Thought in partnership with other institutions at Columbia and beyond, about the social and historical basis of AI with the aim of creating a critical theoretical, praxis-oriented, and multi-disciplinary approach towards this newest form of techno-futurism.
