Equity and Justice in Robot and AI Design Processes

As we see more evidence of how artificial intelligence (AI)-based technologies can harm society, we need to adjust our technology design processes to prevent creating or further entrenching social inequities and address the central question of how do we design robots and AI technologies equitably. This talk describes design justice, co-design, design research, and human-centered design methodologies that have been deployed to create more equitable design processes for robots and AI technologies. The work highlighted demonstrates how to engage in equitable design of robot and AI technologies by (1) empowering users through design methodologies; (2) mapping design, equity, and justice in human-AI interaction; and (3) creating spaces to support equitable technology design and design education.
