In the guise of starting from something self-evident, the project of ‘artificial intelligence’ in fact serves to define what ‘intelligence’ is and how to value it, and therefore how diverse people should be valued too. Educators have good reason to be wary of the concept of ‘intelligence’ at all, but particularly as a single scale of potential that people have in measurable degrees. It is a statistical artefact that has long been scientifically discredited. It has been used to enforce racial and gender discrimination in education and to justify diverse forms of discriminatory violence, particularly over colonial subjects.
