Black Sheep by BBH


8. Josie Young: "AI needs a brain like mine in the room"

Josie is a feminist AI researcher. Is Google’s predictive search racist? Why do virtual assistants have female voices? Why doesn’t Alexa stand up to sexual harassment? Josie’s exposing data bias in a world designed by men.

She talks to our host, Daniella Isaacs, about the myth of tech neutrality, the importance of designing feminist AI and what happens when a pregnant woman walks into a room full of coders.

Black Sheep is produced by Black Sheep Studios with Daniella Isaacs for BBH. It's recorded, mixed and mastered by our friends at Soho Radio, and the music is by Daniel Lovegrove.
