Symposium: Designing for Futures Otherwise

We are excited to invite you to the “Designing for Futures Otherwise: From the Designerly Imaginaries to the Socio-Technical Practices of Responsible AI” public symposium on the 25th of January at the University of Copenhagen. In this symposium, we explore the role of designerly imaginaries and socio-technical practices in the design of Responsible AI, showcasing the findings of three years in the DCODE Marie-Curie network. Professor Irina Shklovski will open the symposium by introducing the DCODE network in discussion with the affiliated industry partner, Bulent Ozel. We are excited to have our keynote speaker, Professor Ann Light, invited to share her insights on “Imagining Difference”.

We will feature two thematic panels, addressing the designerly imaginaries and the expert’s socio-technical practices in designing AI systems that aspire to be responsible and inclusive.
