Northern Arizona University Highlights DECUR Project "AI Design Across Cultures"

By Toni DeVille

The DECUR partnership between Northern Arizona University and the National Defense University seeks to examine cultural variation in the core components of AI. 

"The project has two parts; Gwyneth Sutherlin at the National Defense University in Washington, D.C., is coordinating the work on how existing AI tools designed and developed in the Western context categorize the content of social media posts in non-Western language and cultures—specifically, South Korea and Taiwan. Jarvis is coordinating the second half of the study, which looks at whether individuals who live in these countries and speak the languages of these cultures interpret social media posts in the same way the AI does."
