Selena Nemorin: If I am to look at bias in algorithmic systems I should at least try to understand my own biases first, no?

Selena Nemorin: Through its institutional processes of normalization, power hides rather than reveals and interprets the relationships that characterize its control over society and life.

What colour am I? On growing up
I’d like to revisit something I mentioned briefly in my last project update: identity. I’m not sure if this is an experience felt across a general population, or if it’s just me, but the older I get the more I realise how much the journey of understanding my ‘self’ is implicated in the kinds of research I do. Re-reading my last update about open and transparent education research, I can’t help but think about the limitations of my own research design in terms of personal bias. If I am to look at bias in algorithmic systems I should at least try to understand my own biases first, no? So, this project update is one that reflects on a limitation of my research project: me.
