Unboxing AI – Understanding Artificial Intelligence

Thursday 5th - Saturday 7th November, 2020, online.
An online conference about space, body, and materiality of AI, curated by and with Antonio Casilli, professor of sociology at Télécom Paris.

But what are the material conditions of AI production? Who are the multitudes of precarious workers generating data and operating algorithms? What are the geographical areas and the social scope of the work required to produce intelligent technologies? In what way do beliefs, cultures and values of those who design and implement artificial intelligence solutions influence the use of these technologies?
