The anthropologist in me worries how much is missed when we study human-AI trust dynamics in the lab, not in real institutional contexts. Maybe we need a “Roles for Lab Experiments in Social Change” paper? Modeled after the must read #FAT2020 paper :)

I finally read @red_abebe's paper on the opportunities presented by computing over social problems: The more I've embedded myself in ML fairness the more I've realised that with harm that has happened new opportunities have risen.

Karen is brilliant and anything she writes is self-recommending. So when she says that she’s *really* excited about one of her papers, pay attention!

This paper from #FAT2020 is a great read - "Roles for Computing in Social Change" - it discusses four ways in which computing can support rather than supplant change on complex social issues (diagnosis, formalism, rebuttal, and synecdoche)
