Project description

AI is typically presented as a technology-driven phenomenon in which humans are either the victims or beneficiaries. Yet, that narrative overlooks the complex transnational human relations structuring how that technology is produced, including whose data is being used and how, as well as the ownership and control of algorithmic systems used in large language and visual models, as well as automated decision-making.
