Karen Nakamura氏(カリフォルニア大学バークレー校)講演会のご案内(2020.3.25)


タイトル: How Artificial Intelligence is Fundamentally Changing the
Landscape for Disability (and not in positive ways)
日時: 2020年3月25日(水)17;00-18:30
場所: 東京大学本郷キャンパス 赤門総合研究棟 549室

The development of artificial intelligence / machine learning (AI/ML)
systems has accelerated rapidly in the last decade. Now, very few of us
are not in contact with AI systems on a daily basis – whether on an
intimate basis with Siri, Google, Alexa or more abstractly through some
of the AI/ML systems that drive modern commerce. However, while the
AI/ML system was initially driven on the promise of greater access —
especially to people with disabilities — the reality is that the newest
iterations of AI/ML risk excluding disabled and other marginalized
populations even further. From health evaluations to job screenings,
from automated pedestrian detection to automated passport lanes,
technologists, social scientists, bioethicists, legal experts, and
members of marginalized communities will need to work together to chart
the appropriate frameworks for the new deployments of these technologies.

Professor Karen Nakamura is a cultural and visual anthropologist at the
University of California Berkeley. Her first book was titled Deaf in
Japan: Signing and the Politics of Identity (2006). Her next project
resulted in two ethnographic films and a monograph titled, A Disability
of the Soul: An Ethnography of Schizophrenia and Mental Illness in
Contemporary Japan (2014). She is currently working on the intersections
of transsexuality and disability politics in postwar Japan as well as a
project on disability, technology, and access especially in the context
of Artificial Intelligence (AI/ML).
