Artificial Intelligence Experiments

Welcome to Calling Up Justice Artificial Intelligence Experiments! We started tinkering with AI tools like ChatGPT, DALL·E, and MidJourney as soon as they hit the scene. We hopped onto the DAIR Mastodon server and dug into papers like “Stochastic Parrots” to learn from experts on AI Ethics.

Using them to push for disability and racial justice in our AI experiments and projects. Our Accessible Innovation project is producing tangible results.
