Extractivism and the Research Turn - online discussion
Kate Crawford and Vladan Joler collaborated on the research and visualization project Anatomy of an AI System (2018) that is a central element of the exhibition Allegories of an Automated Present. On this occasion the artist and scholar will discuss the methods they used and the aim they had in mind while elaborating a critical project on AI, on the verge of artistic and academic production.
Kate Crawford is a leading international scholar who has spent the last decade studying the social implications of data systems, machine learning and artificial intelligence. Kate's work also includes collaborative art projects and critical visual design.
Vladan Joler is a professor at the New Media department of the University of Novi Sad. He is leading SHARE Lab, a research and data investigation lab for exploring different technical and social aspects of algorithmic transparency, digital labour exploitation, invisible infrastructures, black boxes, and many other contemporary phenomena on the intersection between technology and society.
The discussion will be held in English.
