We are attending this at The Turing Institute In London next month. The focus is on inequality and imbalance.

From the prospectus:

“We will discuss how divides and inequalities are proliferated in digital society, how social cleavages can be observed via web data, how the organizational structure of the web itself generates biases and inequality, and how, in contrast, algorithms and computational tools might help to reduce discrimination and inequality. We will also investigate how bias and unequal social structures foster political tension and polarization, including issues of radicalization and hate.”

Given our mission — to expose the stories, media, themes and emotional response which shape our reality through collective behaviours (including those which amplify such inequality and imbalances) — there should be plenty to discuss. Looking forward to it.
