Description - Artificial Knowing by Alison Adam

Challenging the masculine slant in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) view of the world, this text aims to fill the gap in science and technology studies by showing how gender is inscribed in AI-based computer systems. Drawing from a wide range of social science, philosophical and feminist theory, and using tools of feminist epistemology, the author provides a sustained critique of AI which re-enforces and extends many of the traditional criticisms of the AI project.
