Tiara Roxanne is a Tarascan Mestiza scholar and artist based in Berlin. They are currently a Postdoctoral Fellow at Data & Society in the Trustworthy Infrastructures research team, developing protocols of trust and safety online with Indigenous communities based in Central and South America.
Roxanne’s work is dedicated to rethinking the ethics of AI through an anti-colonial and cyberfeminist lens. By taking a multidisciplinary approach, their research on data colonialism interrogates how big data and datamining systems govern a colonial imposition through design and (visual) representation. These datamining practices arise from machine learning and artificial intelligence black boxes that lack intersectional intelligence and Indigenous knowledge.
