"Unmasking AI shows Dr. Joy Buolamwini’s unmatched ability to break down complex topics for a wide audience. While taking us through her journey from a curious scientist excited by the possibilities of AI to one who uncovers its harms, Buolamwini breaks down the past, present, and future of AI harms in a manner that allows everyone to understand and participate in resisting them. This book is yet another artifact of her excellence."
Timnit Gebru, Founder of Distributed AI Research Institute and co-founder of Black in AI
"Through stories that are both personal and deeply relevant for all of humanity, Dr. Joy Buolamwini brings wit and clarity to the punishing reality of AI bias. Unmasking AI illuminates achievable paths for the world’s future that are far more promising and just than our current trajectories. In the years to come, we will see that Buolamwini’s research and civic engagement—marked by her insightful blending of technology, art, policy advocacy, industry interventions, and mass media—have been some of the most important work to emerge from MIT on AI.”
