Conversational AI

Dr Birgitte Aga is an artist, technologist and producer who uses conversational AI (technologies that talk) as medium for protest, challenging the pervasive lack of diversity and user participation within their  development. She has designed new conversational AI artworks for Tate Modern and ARS Electronica, and continues to challenge the status quo with her collaborator and SWCTN Fellow Coral Manton. Together, they launched  ‘Women Reclaiming AI’, a feminist AI voice assistant, programmed through workshops by a growing community of self-identifying women. Birgitte is also part of the i-DAT Collective and in receipt of funding from the ACE Artists International Development fund (UK). As an Automation Fellow, she is researching the impact of AI on society.
