AI Now 2019 Symposium

The Growing Pushback Against Harmful AI

Join us on October 2nd in NYC at the AI Now 2019 Symposium. This year, we’re providing behind-the-scenes insights from those at the frontlines of the growing pushback against harmful AI.

Our program features leading lawyers, organizers, scholars, and tech workers, all of whom have engaged creative strategies to combat exploitative AI systems across a wide range of contexts, from automated allocation of social services, to policing and border control, to worker surveillance and exploitation, and well beyond. 

We look forward to sharing the stories of those at the forefront, drawing on their insight and experience as we work together to ensure that AI is accountable to the people whose lives it most affects.

Thank you for your interest in the AI Now 2019 Symposium — tickets are currently sold out. Join the waitlist to be contacted if additional tickets become available, and check back here on October 2nd to watch the livestream (no registration required).
