A Conversation with Catriona Gray
Did you miss us already? Well, The Anti-Dystopians are back!
This time, I spoke with Catriona Gray, a PhD at the University of Bath working at the intersection of sociology, politics, and law. We discussed AI and the political economy of data; whether frameworks like ‘data is the new oil’ are helpful to understanding these new technologies; what really *is* new about these technologies or the relationships that have been created today; how to think about the inequities between the Global North and the Global South, and how these relate to existing and historical relationships; and the implementation and conceptualization of AI regulation in governments and beyond.
