Abstract: Queer in AI's third NeurIPS workshop comes amidst a global pandemic, uprisings against police brutality and economic injustice in countries around the world, and the specter of increasingly rapid climate breakdown. These challenges militate against business as usual in AI/ML. Our workshop asks its participants to think and work hard to bring a radical spirit to their technical and social work, and to fight for the rights and freedoms of queer people, and all people, around the world.

Queer In AI’s mission is to make the AI/ML community one that welcomes, supports, and values queer scientists from around the world. We accomplish this aim by building a visible community of queer and ally AI/ML scientists through meetups, poster sessions, mentoring, and other initiatives. We also recognize the growing impact AI/ML has on societies around the globe, and the potential for these powerful learning and classification technologies to out and target queer people, in addition to other issues. A central part of Queer in AI's mission is raising awareness of these societal challenges in the general AI/ML community and encouraging and highlighting research on and solutions to these problems.
