Happening now: @jovialjoy is unpacking bias + #ML @lesbiantech #GHC18 big crowd
Came late. But here goes..

Only requirement to join Algorithmic Justice League is to come up with a superhero name + a burning desire to help. @jovialjoy #GHC18
Companies are now moving towards algorithmic accountability l. Started work in 2016. Movement now. Joined IEEE to help with this work. TED talk over 1M views. @jovialjoy #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
Gender binary goes back to political classification. Should we even be labeling people by gender? Ongoing struggle but this is something we need to keep bringing up. Engineers are not making distinctions. Assumptions need to be challenged. @jovialjoy #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
Q: How terrified should we be with sexual identity + facial recognition weaponized at scale?

A: Very terrified. How can you resist the power you do not see? We need to educate people on what is being automated.

@jovialjoy #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
Q: How do you keep your bucket full?

@jovialjoy: I read the reports by the AJL. I read comms from students about how they use their artistic voices in tech. Seeing @KamalaHarris present out work.

#GHC18 + @lesbiantech
.@jovialjoy: I am from Ghana. I support the West African contingency and all sentient beings. ❤ #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
.@jovialjoy: I am the daughter of an artist + a scientist. I have had very encouraging parents to be across both fields. But... how about that PhD?? #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
As far as the academic journey, you have to choose your *own* path. There is so much you can do at tech, but there are still limitations by not expanding your studies. @jovialjoy (ed: So much respect as the path is laid down to where she is. Find your road. Trust it.) #GHC18
Here I am trying to express myself and once again the coded gaze emerges. [ed summary: Path into tech justice was from just trying to make creative projects + realizing it was not built to include me.] @jovialjoy #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
One thing to explain to people *not* in tech? What total product inclusion looks like. What it means. Why it is important. @jovialjoy #GHC18 + @lesbiantech
