Race After Technology: Abolitionist Tools for the New Jim Code

By Ruha Benjamin

This illuminating work tears apart the myth that automation will reduce discrimination and lays bare the racial biases lurking within artificially intelligent systems. Benjamin examines the processes by which racial hierarchy is programmed, often completely unintentionally, into emerging technology. A must-read for anyone concerned with the social implications of artificial intelligence and with racial inequality more generally.
