What Sociodigital Futures are in the making?

Tech image of future

What’s on offer?

A panel talk covering a wide range of themes being researched at the Centre for Sociodigital FUTURES: Community tech ownership and control (Martin Parker, University of Bristol and Anna Dent, Promising Trouble); Environmental aspects of digital technologies (Chris Preist, University of Bristol and Phil Tovey, Defra); Swarm robotics and movement of goods (Sabine Hauert and Sanja Milivojevic, University of Bristol)

What’s it about?

Digital technologies, devices and data are woven into the fabric of contemporary societies. The social and digital are co-evolving in a sociodigital world. Join academics and partners working with the ESRC funded Centre for Sociodigital Futures (CenSoF) as they discuss and debate their work exploring sociodigital futures in the making. Listen to and engage in conversation about the sorts of Sociodigital futures that are being opened up, closed down (or never mentioned at all) in public, academic, political and industry settings, and what might be done to tip these towards fairer and more inclusive ways of life.

Who’s leading the event?
