DH Forum Workshop: Smart Villages and the Dangers of Governance by Algorithms

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Free

In this workshop, participants will take on the familiar role of citizen of a small village. The only difference is that this small village and everyday transactions are completely governed by block-chain mechanisms in the creation of contracts. In other words, we will run through prototypical scenarios of creating “smart” contracts via programs designed to produce the most efficient contracts. These mock contracts will serve as entries into issues of bias, justice, and control in code and law and as tools of critical reflection and future scenarios on algorithmic governance, politics, and design. Location: Lawrence Public Library, Meeting Room C

Presented by: Denisa Kera, Marie Curie Research Fellow at the University of Salamanca
