Description: With the idea of computation as the base, we look at different elements of our modern world and how technology has shaped and molded reality into its own image.
“A book-length argument for the idea that vastly proliferating knowledge—from mass surveillance, social media, artificial intelligence, and other sources—is paradoxically making the world harder to comprehend, while the technology that underlies it is creating environmental damage that we’re ill-equipped to understand or solve … Highly nuanced in its analysis of technology, and it provokes [one] to think more about the unspoken social and political assumptions underlying a lot of [the] industry.”
Intent of Session:
To discuss technology's presence in society in the past, present, and future. What is and should be the role of artificial computing power and technology in society? Where are we equals with technological counterparts, where are we in control, and where have we resigned ourselves to rest complacently in its cradle? In our search to understand the world through computational simulation, can we still see the line between reality and the simulation we've created for ourselves?
