The Agnes Irwin Community is excited to welcome Agnes Irwin’s first visiting scholar, Meredith Broussard. Professor Broussard is an author whose books center around advancements in technology and artificial intelligence. She is also a data journalism professor at the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at New York University. Broussard shared: “This work puts The Agnes Irwin School and its community at the forefront of these important academic conversations that truly will impact life as we know it for the span of our lives — and far beyond.”

Over the course of several visits this school year, Prof. Broussard and students from PreK to twelfth grade explore some of the most exciting and cutting edge topics related to artificial intelligence, also called “AI” or machine learning. Some of the topics include: “What is AI?” “What is an algorithm?” “Where do these things show up in our lives?” and “What do they do to advance the world?” They will also dive into the topics of Broussard’s research by looking through the lens of limitation – “What parts of AI are imperfect?” “Is AI currently programmed to hinder women, girls, minorities, or other groups of people? And if so, what can be done?” 

Prof. Broussard's appointment and spring events are made possible by the generous support of Goldman Sachs, The Clower Family Speakers Fund, and the AIS Center for the Advancement of Girls.
