Data and our understanding of correctness and ground truth are a function of our history, culture and our position in society. In this talk, I wish to share with you some of the often non-documented decisions we make as builders of machine learning tools and how they challenge the theory of building for all.


Nyalleng Moorosi is a senior researcher at DAIR, and her research interests are in understanding how we can build models which center populations often regarded as peripheral.
