The A.I. Divide: What is the Impact of Artificial Intelligence on Digital Equity?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) advancements have begun to transform social interaction and business operations. Such rapid transformations beg the question: How do these innovations affect the existing digital inequities that separate those with access to the technology from those without? How do we bridge that divide?
The digital divide has traditionally focused on human access, skills, and capacity; however, AI complicates the interaction between humans and AI-enabled systems. As we stand at the precipice of an AI revolution, it’s critical that policymakers, technology companies, and equity advocates work collectively to steer these transformative technologies towards empowering people in need, rather than further isolating them.
Join us on October 24th to explore the impact of AI during the latest installment of our ongoing learning series, Connecting California: Solving the Digital Divide. Featuring experts in AI social work research, workforce development, and digital equity community advocacy, the panel will shed light on the role of AI and its implications on the digital divide in California and beyond.
