Since 2015, an increasing number of ethical AI guidelines have been published. Despite their common goal, they leverage largely divergent values and categories. Moreover, ethical AI guidelines display a strong alignment with corporate interests and emphasize technology’s deployment. In order to develop an end-to-end ethical approach to AI, we must take into account the conditions of production of the data used to create and market artifacts. After analyzing the “mineralogical layer” of intelligent technologies (ie. the use of rare minerals embedded in devices) and the environmental costs of producing increasingly large models, we focus on the geography of the platform labor necessary to train, verify, and sometimes impersonate AI systems. The global distribution of AI companies (based in higher-income countries) and that of data labor (located in lower-income countries) reproduce legacy global inequalities in terms of wealth, power, and economic influence.
