Keep Me Posted is a podcast about the intersection of race, rights, democracy and justice in the digital age. State governments are increasingly relying on AI tools and systems to determine whether people qualify for public benefits and to what extent they receive them. For people with disabilities, this can mean losing critical support without warning or explanation. Algorithms are designed to make decisions based on patterns, but disabilities are diverse, nuanced and sometimes not even physically apparent.  This week's guest, , is a policy counsel with the Center for Democracy and Technology’s Privacy and Data Project, focused on disability rights and algorithmic fairness and justice. Their work is investigated algorithmic harm and injustice in public benefits determinations, hiring algorithms and algorithmic surveillance that disproportionately impact disabled people — particularly multiply marginalized, disabled people.
