Gender Reveal

Jul 25, 2022

Tuck speaks with sociologist Alex Hanna (she/her). Topics include:

  • How claiming AI is “sentient” gives big tech companies more power
  • Privacy tips for trans folks and abortion-seekers (and why they’re not enough)
  • Using data science to predict who will win Drag Race
  • Literally what is the point of Dall-E? 
  • Plus: Roller derby, Star Trek, and some Macedonian teenager’s repository of faces?
