Talk of Dr. Ashley Shew on “A Cyborg Critique of AI Futures”

Consumer Informatics invites you to our last guest lecture in June. In her talk on “A Cyborg Critique of AI Futures”, Dr. Ashley Shew will speak for us about her experiences as a cyborg.

Ashley Shew, Associate Professor of Science, Technology, and Society at Virginia Tech, focuses on the philosophy of technology at the intersection of animal studies, disability studies, and emerging technologies, and is co-editor of Techne, the journal of the Society for Philosophy and Technology, author of Animal Constructions and Technological Knowledge (2017), and co-editor of three volumes: Spaces for the Future (with Joseph C. Pitt, 2017), Reimagining Philosophy and Technology, Reinventing Ihde (with GlenMiller, 2020), and Feedback Loops: Pragmatism About Science and Technology (with Andrew Garnar, forthcoming). Her current research prioritizes the narratives her disabled peers tell about their minds and bodies to show how we should think about the future of technology.

The talk is free of charge and open for everyone interested in Human AI interaction.

We will meet on June 25. at 4:00 pm CEST.

The talk will be held via zoom. To join us, use the link:
