GeDIS paper on machine learning from a feminist epistemological perspective to be presented at EASST Conference

Goda Klumbyte will present a paper (co-authored with Claude Draude) ‘Whose Knowledge, Whose Power? Investigating Principles of Machine Learning From a Feminist Epistemological Perspective’ during an annual conference of the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology, 25-28 July in Lancaster, UK.

The paper looks at the principles of knowledge production and legitimization through data-based algorithms in machine learning. It asks what kind of conceptual models of learning and knowledge are proposed, and how these models can be re-evaluated from the perspective of feminist epistemologies. The paper will be part of the panel ‘The power of correlation and the promises of auto-management. On the epistemological and societal dimension of data-based algorithms’, led by Jutta Weber (University of Paderborn) and Gabriele Gramelsberger.
