Following @nextgenethno’s meeting on 19 Oct 2020 (today lol), I thought I’d get started on AMA planning.
The first would ideally take place in about a month’s time. Not much required besides:
- Speaker: be on the platform for an hour to answer questions, and return in a week or so to contribute to the discussion
- For us and community managers: prepare questions in advance and bring in active participants
- NGI Team: advertise
To get the first AMA started, a few people I had in mind:
Aimilia Givropoulou, Senior Policy Advisor, European Parliament to talk about her efforts to challenge the European Commission’s project called iBorderCtrl that aims to use facial recognition softwares to restrict entrance to the EU
Anton Ekker, independent attorney, to talk about his winning case against the Dutch government’s use of risk scoring algorithm designed for welfare fraud detection
Divij Joshi, Mozilla Fellow to talk about India’s Aarogya Setu application for contact tracing, exposure notification, and risk scoring and how it has the potential to produce anti-democratic, exclusionary, and discriminatory impacts
Crofton Black, Bureau of Investigative Journalism to talk about how border authorities and tech companies are combining space technologies, social media profiling, and big data analytics to monitor migrant movements.
Who do you think would be good?
