WE’RE A GLOBAL COMMUNITY CONDUCTING CRITICAL AI RESEARCH FOR THE BENEFIT OF PEOPLE, NOT PROFITS

We host events, run community-led research projects, and make public resources to democratize AI literacy and critical discourse, practice critical & creative thinking, and research and prototype new ways of being in relation to AI and technology.

Our Team

We are community-led, independent / DIY, and largely volunteer-run organization. At this moment in time, our core team exists of 3 people, each whose hours are 1/3th of paid time and the other out of love.

ORIGIN STORY

Back in 2018, there were designers & artists sprinkled around the world - scrolling through dev repos, experimenting with AI, questioning algorithmic affordances, not knowing there were others like them.

When Nadia Piet launched the AI meets Design toolkit, it served as bat signal for this community which evolved over the years to come

In 5 years, we have grown from a Slack group to a self-organised global community of 8,000+ computationally-curious people.

Today, we remain an independent community, working in the open, dedicated to conducting critical AI design research for people (not profit).

OUR CONTributors

We are community-led and -run organisation. We would not manage to do all the work that we did over the years without the hands / eyes / brains of the wonderful community that is helping manifest ideas into realities.
