Feminism for Robots

by Jacqueline Feldman

This week’s Engadget video profile covers my work designing a genderless AI personality, Kai, for Kasisto. Just as algorithms left to train on large data sets have come up with results that appear sexist, AI personalities are blank slates that must be deliberately inscribed or risk reproducing biases of the culture in which they arise.

Women aren’t objects. So, objects don’t have to be women, as I recently told Refinery29.

Finally, I’m quite proud of having designed Kai to stonewall come ons, as this article notes.
