HUMAN+ presents 'The New Cybernetics? Making sense of the 21st century' a lecture by Professor Genevieve Bell, Director of the 3A Institute, Florence Violet McKenzie Chair, and a Distinguished Professor at the Australian National University. Organised by Human+ project in partnership with the Trinity Long Room Hub and ADAPT, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Digital Content Innovation at Trinity College Dublin.
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’’.
