  1. Not all black and white. Re-thinking identity | RNZ

    Gender. Sexuality. Religion. Race. Nationality. Class. Culture. These are just some of the key facets of identity that help us define who we are, which often involve labels, stereotypes and ideas about how you should behave. In his new book , "The Lies That Bind” the celebrated philosopher Kwame Anthony Appiah challenges our assumptions about how identity works, and also recognises that if we get it right it can help expand our horizons.

  2. Our American Muslim Identity-Ustadh Hisham Mahmoud

    "Every ‘ism’ is a prism of a mind in prison and every identity based on a ‘ism’ is temporal and will avail nothing when the angels ask ‘who is your Lord?’, ‘what is your religion?’ and ‘who is your prophet?’.

    Ustadh Hisham Mahmoud provides some thought-provoking insights on race, identity, and Muslims in America.

  3. ML and AI: Opportunity or Arms Race?

    Advances in machine learning and artificial intelligence have created promising results across identity use cases from authentication to remote identity proofing. However, these technologies are also increasingly available to fraudsters and hackers, creating an ever escalating arms race. How do artificial intelligence and machine learning fit with other emerging technologies for identity use cases? What are the opportunities and pitfalls for organizations to be aware of? And how will humans continue to remain in the equation on both sides?

  4. African-American Identity in the Age of Obama - The Takeaway

    In a new book, Professor Michael Eric Dyson explains how he described Barack Obama’s attitude toward African-American identity during the 2008 election. "[W]hat I’ve noticed is that he’s proud of his race, but that doesn’t capture the range of his identity. He’s rooted in, but not restricted by, his blackness." A new book, "Who’s Afraid of Post-Blackness?", examines that concept, and the complicated identity of the 40 million African-Americans in the U.S. today.

    The book’s author, Touré, fiction writer, music critic, and correspondent for MSNBC, defines "post-blackness" and gives examples of it in modern America.
