Joy is a poet of code on a mission to show compassion through computation. As a first-year PhD student in the Center for Civic Media, she founded and leads the Algorithmic Justice League to raise awareness about algorithmic bias and to build tools for inclusive and participatory artificial intelligence. Her research explores the intersection of social impact technology and inclusion with a focus on creating learning experiences that engage diverse participants in shaping the the future of AI. Currently, she is building a Facial Analysis Playground to introduce novices to computer vision and a Data Destiny Tool that enables exploration of training data used for machine learning.
