AI and the Future of Protest Politics: Politics and Emotions in the Age of Digital Transformation and Surveillance Capitalism
We are happy to invite to our international workshop “AI and the Future of Protest Politics: Politics and Emotions in the Age of Digital Transformation and Surveillance Capitalism”, a two-day, hybrid event taking place at the Philosophy Department in Bergen, on 30th November (Thursday) and 1st December (Friday) 2023, from 9:00—17:00 (CET).
Our goal is to bring together prominent scholars from different disciplines to discuss the impact of AI-based platforms, and their underlying technological and economic principles, on political discourse and protest.
The event will draw on the Boston-Bergen Forum on Digital Futures—an international research network among the ‘Culture, Society & Politics’ and the ‘Practical Philosophy’ research groups at UiB’s Philosophy Department, the MediaFutures Research Centre Bergen, the Applied Ethics Center at UMass Boston, and the MIT Program Human Rights and Technology.
