Atlanta Interdisciplinary
Artificial Intelligence

We are an intentionally interdisciplinary network of Atlanta-based researchers investigating how to enlist AI ethically, equitably, and in the service of justice.

Atlanta Focused

We aim to bring the city of Atlanta, with its historical place in the civil rights movement, to current conversations about the biases embedded in our AI systems.

Humanities Forward

We believe that an equitable, ethical, and justice-oriented approach to AI is possible when humanistic ways of thinking come together with technical knowledge and community expertise.


Our next call for seed grant applications will be announced in Summer 2024. Until then, please read about our 2023 Seed Grant awardees.

Public Interest AI

This project examines and critiques the interlocking historical, political, and technical aspects of the city’s data quality management in relation to the Atlanta Beltline, a former railroad turned mixed-use path that encircles the city. We are co-creating community data and AI literacy workshops to shape an inclusive AI future for the City of Atlanta.
