A unique design philosophy emerged from feminist AI projects research:
Design with and for unheard voices in AI creation.
We must be invited to a location to participate.
All knowledge systems and skills are equally honored and valued.
Acknowledge and own privilege.
We want multiple entry points for involvement, so we can pull from different knowledge systems for our design and development.
The AI project/research can be a social response or technical making.
We would like to revisit every step of our process with every new project.
The physical (hardware, interaction, experience) and the digital are key elements in our AI Design. The material and purpose are just as important as the data and model.
We attribute everything (people who have come before us, original parallel research).
We encourage our community to move beyond comparing AI to the human brain, and to think about alternative systems to design with AI.
We probe the knowledge assumptions in AI systems, and deliberately deconstruct existing approaches to the AI creation (from the data, to the rulesets, to the output).
We work to contribute to and community source our own data, to control our own intelligent futures.
