Google AI inclusivity interview

Andrea Lewis Åkerman interviewed Tiffany Deng, Tulsee Doshi and Timnit Gebru on their work at Google to make the company’s AI products more inclusive. “Why is it that some products and services work better for some than others, and why isn’t everyone represented around the table when a decision is being made?” They emphasize the importance of tooling and resources, the difficulty of even defining fairness, and the necessity of diversity in both data and teams. I found their journeys toward their positions at Google—each noticing inequalities in tech and wanting to help fix them—especially eye-opening.
