A Call for (Global) South to North Methodological Approaches in Critical AI Studies

Join us on Thursday, May 11th, from 17:00 to 18:00 CET for a new conversation!
In this talk, Dr Andrea Medrado and Mathias Felipe de Lima Santos, interrogate ideas of artificial intelligence (AI) for social good, drawing inspiration from Participatory Action Research (PAR) and the work of Latin American thinkers such as Freire and Fals Borda. Presenting data from participatory workshops conducted in London with a diverse group of students, activists and tech workers, they analyse two transversal themes - AI for social good? and decolonial perspectives of AI - and delve into three concepts - autonomy, empathy and dialogue. They propose a South-North flow and utilise PAR approaches that stem from Latin America.

This is an attempt to challenge the ways in which the North’s centrality is taken for granted when it comes to epistemologies, experiences, and pieces of knowledge related to AI. They argue that PAR can not only empower marginalised communities in the Global South; we can also learn more from its application in the Global North, in contexts where people deal with different struggles. Yet, there are constraints in applying PAR. These are related to how scholarship is organised in the Global North, often with the aim to generate top-down impact, which stands in opposition to the open agenda and bottom-up approach of PAR. Still, much can be learned from this research journey. Inspired by Fals Borda’s (2003) “sentipensante” notion, they embrace an “epistle-method-philosophical” approach in which making, thinking and feelings are all combined. Rather than following the AI hype, they argue that more is to be learned from everyday AI stories, which we must tell, listen to and share in pluriversal ways.
