Histories of Artificial Intelligence: A Genealogy of Power


Syed Mustafa Ali (The Open University) is Lecturer and convenor of the Critical Information Studies (CIS) research group in the School of Computing and Communications. His transdisciplinary research focuses on developing a hermeneutic framework grounded in Heideggerian phenomenology, critical race theory and postcolonial/decolonial thought, and using this framework to explore how race, religion, politics and ethics are ‘entangled’ with various technological (more specifically, ICT) phenomena. In this connection, he has published work in the area of Decolonial Computing and Algorithmic racism, interrogating Trans-/Posthumanism, the discourse of ‘Big Data’ and internet governance.
