Artificial Knowing challenges the masculine slant in the Artificial Intelligence (AI) view of the world. Alison Adam admirably fills the large gap in science and technology studies by showing us that gender bias is inscribed in AI-based computer systems. Her treatment of feminist epistemology, focusing on the ideas of the knowing subject, the nature of knowledge, rationality and language, are bound to make a significant and powerful contribution to AI studies.
Drawing from theories by Donna Haraway and Sherry Turkle, and using tools of feminist epistemology, Adam provides a sustained critique of AI which interestingly re-enforces many of the traditional criticisms of the AI project. Artificial Knowing is an esential read for those interested in gender studies, science and technology studies, and philosophical debates in AI.

MEDIA REVIEWS
..."well-written and clear... puts a new slant on the long-running debates on the foundation and practice of AI."
-"Mind, Culture and, and Activity: An International Journal
"A truly original contribution. For the first time we have a reading of recent feminist theory in relation to a comprehensive and critical review of projects in artificial intelligence, and of relevant developments in the sociology of knowledge and social studies of technology."
-Lucy Suchman, Xerox Palo Alto Research Center
"This is a very important book ... It deserves to be read by both sides of what has for too long been a 'gender-technology split' - by mainstream feminists who, barring a small community of feminist scholars of technology, have paid scant attention to technology, and by all those interested in the 'AI debate' which has for so long been notable for its lack of a feminist voice. Wendy Faulkner, University of Edinburgh."
