Resisting AI
An Anti-fascist Approach to Artificial Intelligence
Author: Dan McQuillan

1: Operations of AI

Author: Dan McQuillan

This chapter delves into the actual mechanics of machine learning. It emphasizes the algorithmic operations of optimizsation as well as the dependencies on data. Moving on to neural networks, it examines the internal transformations of the data, for example through backpropagation, and the paradoxical pairing of predictive accuracy with opacity. The chapter highlights the materiality of AI and its consequences in terms of both carbon emissions and the centraliszation of control. It closes by focusing on the poorly paid and invisible workforce that underpins AI, and the continuous thread of anti-workerism that connects the origins of computing (Babbage) to contemporary applications of AI (Amazon).
