Yeshi Milner (USA) – Data for Black Lives: Believes that data science needs to be used for good –specifically to amplify the voices and experiences of the disenfranchised. Through the Data for Black Lives movement, she raises awareness in Black communities about the mechanics of big data, like credit scores, and shows how algorithms impact daily life. She also works to collect better and more useful data that can address issues of importance to the Black community. For example, by using better data, maternal health care has now improved at the largest public hospital in Florida, an issue which disproportionately affected Black women.

Gemma Galdon (Spain)—Eticas: Who decides whether we get a mortgage, a job, or priority care in the Emergency Room? Algorithms. Artificial Intelligence is increasingly making decisions that affect the most important aspects of our lives. This is what sparked Ashoka Fellow Gemma Galdon to found Eticas, which uses algorithmic audits to embed fairness and equity into AI. Gemma is changing the way technology is created through her innovative algorithms audit methodology, which ensures technology does not replicate the biases and injustices present in real-life decision-making tools. Through shifting the mindsets of governments, companies, and public opinion, Eticas Consulting makes sure the hard-won rights and regulations that govern the offline world are translated into the design and development of tech tools.
