The Ada Lovelace Institute blog presents ideas, arguments, strategies and practical examples that challenge how we think about data-intensive technologies, foster debate around them and orient us towards a society in which the harm that data and AI can bring are prevented, and the benefits are justly and equitably distributed.
If you have ideas for contributions or commissions, or would like to ask any questions about our blog, please contact Silvia Mollicchi: firstname.lastname@example.org.
