Join the exciting interdisciplinary conversation with the Law Commission of Ontario and York thought-leaders in philosophy, human rights, law, and technology explore key questions being raised about artificial intelligence systems:  How can AI systems avoid automating bias? Is AI any more robust or neutral than human decision making? And how can York University ensure that AI tools and research on campus contributes to inclusion rather than exclusion?

• Prof Regina Rini, Philosophy, Sociology
• Prof Ruth Urner, Department of Engineering & Computer Science, Lassonde School of Engineering

What is Inclusion Day?

Inclusion Day 2020 will focus on belonging, which is a feeling we understand but often struggle to achieve in comprehensive ways. So then, what does it mean to belong? How can we promote a greater sense of belonging at York?

Through a human rights lens, belonging can be seen as the nexus of equity, diversity and inclusion. It’s the space where seats are available at the table, voices are meaningfully heard, and needs are met.
