AI and Political Implications

By Natthaporn Naktnasukanjn

Visualization of AI tension points in policing and education domains

AI visualizes a broader understanding of complex systems and the political implications behind it. But is this what really happens? Gunshot sounds reported by ShotSpotter are more than twice the number of actual crimes reported to the Chicago Police Department. Why is this sensor placed in the Loop and the South of Chicago, but never on the Northside?

Does AI elevate learning or reinforcing inequity?
In the age where people are using AI instead of Google search, does AI have political preferences? What does it mean when some countries do not have access to the internet or AI?
