Rolling Out Celebrates Black History Month with RIDE CON AI Lab

Rolling 0ut’s RIDE CON AI Lab is set to immerse attendees in the transformative world of Artificial Intelligence at Morehouse College on Feb. 23 and Feb. 24. The event, which coincides with Black History Month and promises to cover a range of topics, including the role of AI in creative music production, the rise of machine learning, and the implications of personal artificial assistants. Black representation in AI is crucial for challenging biases, promoting inclusivity, and empowering the Black community. In its current emergence, imagery produced by AI often lacks diversity. If one were to search for an image of a Black woman on a prominent platform like MidJourney, the AI technology will still generate images of White women because it is essentially ignorant of the Black community’s existence within the space. This lack of accurate representation perpetuates biases and reinforces the underrepresentation of Black people in various domains.

The lab will feature a dynamic lineup of distinguished speakers, including John Pasmore, CEO of Latimore, an AI platform specifically tailored for the African-American community. Pasmore’s groundbreaking work, achieved through collaboration with several Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), including Morgan State University, highlights the event’s commitment to fostering technical innovation within the African-American community. Marlon Avery, CEO of tech company AI Impact, will lead the ‘lunch and learn’ immersion session. Avery will delve into the transformative potential of AI and synthetic language models, exploring how these technologies can level the playing field for Black entrepreneurs. The keynote address will be delivered by Van Lathan of the Higher Frequency podcast, who will discuss the reinvention of the Internet through AI and the ongoing digital revolution. Prominent tech organizations, including Google, will also be in attendance, offering exclusive insights into the employment landscape, opportunities for growth, and the role of AI within and beyond professional spheres.
