Disobedient AI Alternative strategies for reclaiming future technologies

Join the conversation between artists, curators and technologists Irini Papadimitriou, Nye Thompson, Elvia Vasconcelos, Birgitte Aga and Coral Manton around alternative strategies for reclaiming and redesigning your future living with AI and emergent technologies. With the pervasiveness and omnipresence of AI (Artificial Intelligence), there is an urgency to discuss what this means for the individual and society as a whole. How can we challenge the lack of representation and the bias within these systems? How can we activate people to take part in designing a more desirable future living with these technologies?
