Artificial intelligence (AI) has the potential to revolutionize many aspects of our lives. BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities are often disproportionately affected by the negative consequences of AI. Through a combination of research, personal anecdotes, and examples, I will demonstrate that AI has the potential to improve the lives of BIPOC individuals, but also highlight the proactive steps we must take as a community to ensure that these systems are fair, unbiased, and inclusive. I will also invite the audience to co-architect solutions. Key takeaways from the speech: Understanding the impact of AI on BIPOC communities and the need to overcome existing biases and discrimination. Communicating the potential benefits and risks of AI for BIPOC communities and the importance of building a more equitable future for all.

Target Audience: AI professionals, researchers, policymakers, and anyone interested in the intersection of AI and social justice.

The audience will leave with a better understanding of the impact of AI on BIPOC communities and the steps that can be taken to create a more equitable future for all. Additionally, the audience will be motivated to take action toward creating inclusive and fair AI systems.
