Almost Future AI

19 November, 2020, 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

This is an online event.

In this evening of readings, explore how our lives are increasingly shaped by algorithms, artificial intelligence and data-driven technologies. From facial recognition technology and automated decision making processes to ride-hailing apps and food delivery services, what do we make of our AI mediated world?

Almost Future AI will host an evening of readings by authors commissioned by researchers at the Ada Lovelace Institute’s ‘JUST AI’ project to speculate about the ubiquity of AI technology. We invite you to join three authors in imagining the inner mechanisms of new and emergent technologies, and the complex ethical webs technologies weave in our everyday encounters. Does data safeguard us from newfound dangers? Or cause us more harm than good? Delving into these new dilemmas, via the medium of speculative fiction, this event will use narrative as a way to engage with a host of possible futures shaped by technologies.

Live (real-time) captioning will be provided for this event, if you have questions or request for access, please contact: lhickman@adalovelaceinstitute.org.
