Critical Systems Lecture: New Animisms in Big Data Space

Event takes place 10th of April 11:00-12:00, in room 2A52.

In her new book Mireille Hildebrandt argues that we are on the verge of entering an onlife world saturated with artificial agency. Though such agency is mindless in most senses of the term it will have a profound impact on human agency and challenge many assumptions of modernity. Hildebrandt will focus on the risks of depending on data-driven agency and the need to develop ways and mean to anticipate how it will increasingly anticipate and preempt us.
