Humanities Tech KTH: On surviving AI, being feminist in a software lab and online hate platforms – 30 January 2019

Humanities Tech KTH events explore the intersection of the humanities, human and technology with a particular focus on critical and constructive engagement (critiquing, imagining, (re)designing, making) with socio-technological systems such as AI, search engines, smart cities, and e-commerce logistics.

A keystone is that there should be plenty of time for discussion and conversation. The format is flexible depending on the theme, people and situation. It is hoped that the event series will be an opportunity to bring up important questions relevant from different perspectives and to find opportunities at such intersections.

On January 30 there will be three Humanities Tech KTH events with international and national participants (at KTH). Everyone warmly welcome! Registration required.
