Knowledge, Learning, Community

We've been engaged recently in a project to define and assess data literacy, and topics related to this were in my mind as I attended the AI Policy Community of Practice (AIPCoP) discussion this afternoon. These topics overlap in the concept of data feminism, a "way of thinking about data science and data ethics that is informed by the ideas of intersectional feminism." This open access book provides one way of approaching the topic; it's a collection of 26 papers discussing data literacy, the role of data visualization in media, and its relation to inequality in society. Related resources include the AI for Development (AI4D) project, the The fr Network, Research ICT Africa (RIA), and the (unfortunately closed-access) books Data Feminism and Design Justice.
