Refiguring the Future: A NetGain Event was hosted on May 3, 2018 at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago.
This unique public program hosted by the NetGain Partnership explored the role of artists in critically examining the social impacts of artificial intelligence and related technologies, and highlighted how the arts can help us refigure the future. The event was the public launch of REFRESH, a new initiative that supports the work of women and women identified artists, especially women of color, LGBTQ+ artists, and artists with disabilities, with the aim of fostering creation of more diverse work in the field of art, science, and technology.
The NetGain Internet of Things (IoT) Conference was held at the New York Public Library in Manhattan on Friday, April 21. The event was livestreamed here.
Through a series of panel discussions, we will explore public interest issues surrounding IoT. What are the privacy and security issues that could arise from this new technology? How should we be thinking about public education and consumer advocacy? And how are cities leveraging sensor-based technology to improve services?
