Caroline Sinders a design researcher, artist, and digital anthropologist currently working at the Wikimedia Foundation on their Anti-Harassment Tools Team. Lately her work and creative projects have focused on the intersections of language processing, artificial intelligence, and online abuse. As a BuzzFeed/Eyebeam Open Labs fellow, she’s worked to prototype a machine-learning system built to mitigate online harassment. She holds a masters from NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, and a BFA in Photography and Imaging from NYU. Here, she talks about how she ended up with such a niche expertise, shares her approach to finding new opportunities, and offers some wisdom for anyone designing things with a user community in mind.
