The Innovation Co-Lab at Duke, in partnership with experts across campus, have launched a new series of short talks to explore the human impact of technology. Over the next month, the Co-Lab will host three talks at the Duke Technology Engagement Center (TEC). All are open to the Duke community. Learn more and enroll at the Co-Lab website.
10/10, 2-3:30 PM: Machinic Virtuosity
Is art-making or surgery simply the application of skilled practice, or something more? Mark Olson, Duke Visual & Media Studies Professor, will explore artificial intelligence and creativity and our beliefs that machines will never replace human actors in these fields. Enroll now.
10/14, 4:30-5:30 PM: The Big Encryption Debate
Kim Kotlar, former intelligence and national security official, and Justin Sherman, Duke Senior and Co-Founder of Ethical Tech, team up to talk about encryption. Learn what it is, how it protects you, how it is used by criminals, and the line law enforcement walks between protecting civil liberties and national security. Enroll now.
10/30, 4:30-5:30 PM: How to Fake a Tweet
Just how easy is it to fake a Tweet? And how do you know when what you read online isn’t real? Duke Librarian, Hannah Rozear, will discuss media manipulation and what you can do about. Enroll now.
About the Digital Citizenship Series
The Digital Citizenship Series seeks to empower Duke community members to live and lead in a world fundamentally altered by the rapid developments of technology and its impacts across all disciplines and more broadly, our culture. Through education and small group discussions of the challenges and ethical dilemmas presented by emerging trends in technology, we encourage our community to engage with each other and to begin to shape our technological future.
All talks are held at the TEC, home of the Innovation Co-Lab, which is located at 2 Telecom Drive.
