About Birgitte Aga

The work of artist-technologist duo Birgitte Aga and Coral Manton manifests as collaborative workshops, events and installations aimed at (re)claiming conversational Artificial Intelligence (AI) systems as a medium for protest. It critiques the commercial pursuit of humanising AI technologies and challenges the bias, stereotyping and pervasive influence embedded within. By activating the public, Aga and Manton re-write and re-imagine the cultural myths of AI and robotics, creating alternative technology-mediated futures. Their most recent work is Women Reclaiming Ai (2019), an expanding activist art-work, presented as a feminist AI voice assistant, programmed through workshops by a growing community of self-identifying women. https://www.womenreclaimingai.com
