Data & Democracy
November 12 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pmFree
Part II in the Center for the Humanities and the Public Sphere’s multi-year series examining challenges to rational public debate turns to the question of how new technologies and the algorithms underlying ‘big data’ shape human experience, communication, and representation. These talks reveal the human values and biases embedded in technological advances, from drone warfare and corporate data to surveillance systems and robots. Our speakers consider the implications of artificial intelligence in public spaces and mobilize the humanities to reflect on cybernetics and intelligent machines.
