Being extremely rich isn't easy and the more money you have, the more drama flocks your way. Dynasty is a remake put into a new sassy, dramatic, female empowered jacket about exuberant wealth and all the struggles that come with it.
The UvA invites all to a symposium on public security under algorithmic control. On Wednesday the 6th of June from 10:00 - 17:00 at the Auditorium of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague.
Governments and law enforcement are increasingly using technology and algorithms to predict where and when illegal activities are likely to occur. The fast-paced implementation of these predictive systems has them silently entering the public realm without discussion of their implications and adverse effects; solidifying structural inequality, creating new geographies of violence and dimensions of exclusion.
To address these matters and further questions of organizing public safety and security in the age of big data, the students and staff of the master Non-Linear Narrative of the Royal Academy of Art in The Hague have organized this symposium, bringing together in conversation a diversity of professional perspectives, including philosophers, academics, designers, and information technology experts.
