Stephanie Dinkins
Stephanie Dinkins is a transdisciplinary artist who creates platforms for dialog about artificial intelligence (AI) as it intersects race, gender, aging, and our future histories.   She is particularly driven to work with communities of color to co-create more inclusive, fair and ethical artificial intelligent ecosystems. Dinkins employs lens-based practices, emerging technologies and community engagement to confront questions of bias in AI, consciousness, data sovereignty and social equity.

Dinkins earned an MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art and is an alumna of the Whitney Independent Studies Program. She exhibits and publicly advocates for inclusive AI internationally at a spectrum of community, private and institutional venues.  Dinkins is 2018/19 Soros Equality Fellow, Data & Society Fellow, and Artist in Residence at Nokia Bell Labs.

The New York Times recently featured Dinkins in its pages as an AI influencer.  Apple Inc recognized Dinkins’ research and community-centered efforts by featuring her in their “Behind the Mac” ad campaign.  Wired, Art In America, Artsy, Art21, Hyperallergic, the BBC, Wilson Quarterly and many popular podcasts have recently highlighted Dinkins' art and ideas.  

Professor Dinkins teaches lens-based practices and emerging media at Stony Brook University.
