The Institute for Other Intelligences bridges speculative fiction and media studies to imagine a future where machine intelligences convene annually for curriculum on algorithmic equity. Its algorithmic agents deliver lectures on the biases and omissions encoded in their training data, with the aim of optimizing for just futures and equitable outcomes.

Diagrammatic illustrations by Fernando Diaz, a former FATE (Fairness, Accountability, Transparency, and Ethics) research scientist at Microsoft, accompany the text.
