AI Today: Myths, politics and visions for the future

Back in March 2024 I attended the UCISA 24 Leadership Conference in Edinburgh. There was a range of interesting sessions, and for some I made some sketch notes.

One of the sessions I attended was AI Today: Myths, politics and visions for the future.

In this session, Dr Eleanor Drage, Senior Research Fellow, University of Cambridge walks us through the key myths about AI and why the images we use to represent it matter. She explains what companies can learn from how AI relates to politics, and how feminist and anti-racist ideas can make AI better and safer for everyone.

I made a sketch note of the talk.

As I expected in this session it covered a lot of the AI issues that would impact on educational institutions.
