LatinX in Artificial Intelligence

LatinX in Artificial Intelligence conference attendeesDiversity Talent Partners has begun to build relations with LatinX. We feel this organization shares the same values and passion for creating pathways for Latinos into Artificial Intelligence opportunities. Below is a bit of background of the organization. Launched in January 2018, leaders from organizations in Artificial Intelligence banded together to create a group that would be focused on “Creating Opportunity for LatinX in AI.”

From LatinXinai.org, “Artificial Intelligence has the potential to displace workers of marginalized populations including those of Latinx origin. AI is already perpetuating social bias and prejudice because it lacks representation of LatinX professionals in the AI industry.” Because of this, DTP aims to partner with organizations that believe in creating a diverse culture within AI and data science. Their mission, which aligns with ours, is as follows:

Tenets

  • Increase representation of Latinx in Artificial Intelligence
  • Improve access to education and resources in AI engineering
  • Improve awareness of the long and short term effects of artificial intelligence
  • Increase communication between companies and LatinX AI engineers and researchers
  • Ensure transparency and accuracy of LatinX culture and voice in data representations
