Data Pollution & Power

The Data Pollution & Power (DPP) initiative is set up at the Bonn University’s Institute of Science and Ethics Sustainable AI Lab by Gry Hasselbalch to explore the power dynamics that shape the data pollution of AI across the UN Sustainable Development Goals. The project examines how power dynamics and interests in the data of AI determine how data resources are handled and distributed in our data eco system and considers actions and governance approaches that are intrinsically interrelated in systems of power and interests. In addition to the establishment of a DPP group, a DPP white paper will be published in 2022.
