Book Title
Resisting AI: An Anti-Fascist Approach to Artificial Intelligence
Author
Dan McQuillan
ISBN
9781529213492
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is everywhere, yet it causes damage to society in ways that can't be fixed. Instead of helping to address our current crises, AI causes divisions that limit people's life chances, and even suggests fascistic solutions to social problems. This book provides an analysis of AI's deep learning technology and its political effects and traces the ways that it resonates with contemporary political and social currents, from global austerity to the rise of the far right. Dan McQuillan calls for us to resist AI as we know it and restructure it by prioritising the common good over algorithmic optimisation. He sets out an anti-fascist approach to AI that replaces exclusions with caring, proposes people's councils as a way to restructure AI through mutual aid and outlines new mechanisms that would adapt to changing times by supporting collective freedom. Academically rigorous, yet accessible to a socially engaged readership, this unique book will be of interest to all who wish to challenge the social logic of AI by reasserting the importance of the common good.Binding Type: HardcoverAuthor: Dan McQuillanPublisher: Bristol University PressPublished: 08/30/2022ISBN: 9781529213492Pages: 190Weight: 0.80lbsSize: 8.60h x 5.70w x 0.60d
