Techweek 2020: Shouting Zeros and Ones

Techweek 2020: Shouting Zeros and Ones

Data flows around the world as computers trade in 0s and 1s, silently making decisions that affect all of us, every day. Meanwhile, we humans shout louder than ever before, spreading news and opinions through social media, polarising society and pitting ourselves against each other.

In conjunction with Bridget Williams Books and Auckland University of Technology, this panel discussion covers three topics from the book Shouting Zeros and Ones (ed Andrew Chen), a BWB Text being released in August 2020. Join Dr. David Hall (moderator), Curtis Barnes, Anjum Rahman, Kathy Errington, and Donna Cormack as they discuss the spread of disinformation, reducing online harm and Māori data sovereignty.

Event Date time: 
Wednesday, July 29, 2020 - 15:30 to 16:30
