A Recap of an Association for Information Science and Technology AI Conference

Sarah Bratt writes about the 2022 NEASIST (Northeast chapter of the Association for Information Science and Technology) AI & Equity Conference for Information Matters, stating the following:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is embedded deeply in our lives. To move AI forward equitably, we need not start from scratch; history can serve us. A powerful reminder of this was the day-long NEASIST event, an energizing reminder that many ASIS&T areas [have] historical ties to the apparently ‘bleeding edge’ issues of AI: Equity and information ethics and policy (SIG-IEP, SIG-SM), Bibliometrics and information retrieval (e.g., SIG-MET, SIG-AI), Information literacy (SIG-ED), knowledge organization and management (e.g., SIG-CR, SIG-KM), and Information behavior, use, and seeking (e.g., SIG-USE) approaches. …

The NEASIST conference “With Great Power: AI and Equity” Friday, March 25, 2022, by Simmons and ASIS&T, co-sponsored by SIG-AI, brought diverse perspectives to questions of the intersection of [AI], machine learning (ML), and society. I was struck by the nuanced perspectives gained from deep technical knowledge of AI systems, connected to the most pertinent questions of our increasingly algorithmically-mediated experiences, services, and products. The scope of the topics was wide ranging—legal scholars brought perspectives related to behavioral data use, emergency preparedness researchers as well as privacy and security brought perspectives on how AI is shaping issues critical to public sector concerns, from COVID-19 case tracking to semi-automated policing.
