Noopur Raval is a postdoctoral researcher at the AI Now Institute. She is an interdisciplinary researcher at the intersection of Information Science and Communication and Media Studies. Her doctoral research studied the transformations that gig economy platforms bring about in how we work, live, and relate to each other ethically. Raval’s research on the gig economy has looked at the effect of platforms on labor conditions, collectivization, and the redistribution of social power through platform participation. At AI Now she leads “A New AI Lexicon” project that pushes the boundaries of critical AI thinking by offering globally situated perspectives.
