Eric Corbett, Ph.D.
CUSP Smart Cities / Provost’s Postdoctoral Fellow, New York University
The challenges for achieving racial justice in the US are more apparent than ever. Within academia, engineering and computer science departments have typically not been at the forefront of engaging these challenges. In this talk, I will illustrate what approaches to racial justice in these departments look like from the perspective of my work in Human-Computer Interaction. I will discuss two projects to showcase a range of opportunities for technology to advance racial justice in civic relationships and in AI equity. From these projects, I will draw out two themes vital for the success of racial justice scholarship in engineering and computer science departments: local engagement and participatory orientation. I will end by outlining potential research trajectories at WashU based on these two themes.
