USC CAIS Statement in Solidarity with the
Black Lives Matter Movement

 

We are horrified by the actions of police officers killing unarmed Black people. We understand that systemic racism is present in science, research, and academia. At USC CAIS, we strive to learn from communities how we, as researchers, can help combat racism. As a center working at the intersection of AI and social work with real world implementation, we recognize the many implicit biases in data, technologies, and current practices. We are committed to evaluating our research, our organization, and our practices to understand what more we need to do as a center and as individuals to be a part of dismantling systemic racism.

OUR PRIMARY GOAL

Our primary goal in this center is to share our ideas about how AI can be used to tackle the most difficult societal problems. We believe that this agenda can best be achieved by a genuine partnership between AI and social work.
