Oh - could everyone introduce themselves briefly when they have a Q?

I’m thinking about the idea os the system as something which could be made a public resource - for any community in a given area to adopt and use
Alexander De Little
01:04:54
and for its uses to be logged in an archive
Alice Eldridge
01:06:00
Yes @Alex — basically open source and participatory design
Alexander De Little
01:06:06
I like the idea that the development of the system could be emergent from its uses

@Alex - This speaks to the move from data and/or design for good to data and/or design for co-liberation (cf “Data Feminism”)

There is a really interesting book that came out recently - data feminism. it is a manifesto for data futures based on interX feminism. and some of the methods from this I think are relevant such as value in local knowledges
James Baker
01:09:16
Looks like we are all reading that book :)

So in summary? (1) Better, more diverse training sets, (2) strategies of refusal (with critical race theory and feminist theory and practice as a set of reference points), (3) diversifying / democratising / decolonising the whole design process (and open source / participatory as potentially part of that, but with significant risks of that bringing its own biases).

I think the quality of public listening / sonority (aural literacy) in general has to be improved in order to improve the possibilities of machine listening system
Alexander De Little
01:13:26
Thinking of the mission of Pauline Oliveros’ Deep Listening
