How is tech changing how we work, think and feel? POSTPONED
THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED.
We are sorry to announce that we have decided to postpone this event which was due to be held Saturday, 14 March 2020 until a later date. The health, welfare and safety of College members, staff and visitors must come first. Many of us have dependents, family members, friends and colleagues who are at risk due to age or underlying health conditions, and as the COVID-19 outbreak continues to grow, postponing this event feels like the right thing to do. We will announce a new date in due course and reactivate ticketing with that announcement.
Our lives are more mediated by technology than at any other time in human history. These interactions with technology seem so every day that they run the risk of seeming almost invisible to us. In this event, we will be discussing the impact of online technology in our everyday habits and behaviours with a focus on how tech influences us at the level of our work, learning, and our personal lives.
For the Cambridge Science Festival 2020, we welcome Tyler Shores (Faculty of Education, Intellectual Forum), Anu Hautalampi (Head of Social Media, University of Cambridge), Dex Torricke-Barton (former speechwriter for Sheryl Sandberg, Mark Zuckerberg, Elon Musk and others), and Dr David Stillwell (Lecturer in Big Data Analytics and Quantitative Social Science at the Cambridge Judge Business School) to look at current and near-present mainstream technology with an eye towards better understanding how we think and talk about data, communication, and what lies ahead in the near future.
This event will also be Livestreamed and can be viewed here.
