Managing the Machines

A public lecture by Professor Genevieve Bell, Director of the 3A Institute, Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, and a Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University.

Professor Bell who is described as an anthropologist, technologist and futurist, is best known for her work at the intersection of cultural practice and technology development. She has spent over 15 years at Intel where she was promoted to Vice President for Strategy and was also elected as a senior fellow, the first female to achieve such a prestigious position in the company. She now heads up a new institute at the Australian National University called the Autonomy, Agency and Assurance (3A) Institute, launched in September 2017 focusing on “building a new applied science around the management of artificial intelligence, data, technology and their impact on humanity’’.

This is the inaugural talk of a new public lecture series ‘What does it mean to be Human?’ organised by the Trinity Long Room Hub and Trinity Research and Innovation. In this high-profile lecture series, experts from enterprise and education will  reflect on what it means to be human at the turn of the 21st century with the growing influence of technology on the way we live, work and communicate.
