UNIFORMITY VS DIVERSITY
Discussion leader: Danielle Arets
Technology offers many the opportunity to participate in society. Thus there is more room for diversity. The practice is different. The paradox of technology is that, despite the possibilities, the instrument is often used to control, manage, homogenize society. Contacts lists on smartphones consist for 95% of people who look like us. Algorithms still produce stereotypes that are not just ridiculous. Conscious feedback is needed for a multiform society.
With Femke Snelting, Jennifer Kanary, Luis Lobo Guerrero and Marije Baalman.
