Call for abstracts - AI-Experiences and Public Safety
International and transdisciplinary symposium on surveillance experiences
April 8th - 9th 2024, at the Erasmus University Rotterdam, the Netherlands.
The symposium will provide a platform for researchers, practitioners, artists and experts from various fields to share insights, findings, and perspectives related to the intersection of AI, surveillance, public safety and human experiences.
The widespread integration of AI into surveillance technologies within the realm of public safety has become increasingly prevalent, exemplified by the likes of biometric and emotional recognition, anomaly detection, DNA banks, crowd control, round-the-clock monitoring, and other forms of data-intensive surveillance. This phenomenon prompts crucial inquiries into its effects on the human experience.
The ambition of the symposium is to explore the multidimensional facets of AI-surveillance and its implications for public safety – encompassing beyond its technological and judicial issues to its emotional, social, and cultural contours. Building on the research in surveillance and AI, the aim of the symposium is to explore how AI-surveillance is experienced by individuals who define, judge, and have emotions related to being watched or being a watcher.
The deadline for proposals is January 15th, 2024. The symposium is free of charge and has limited spaces. Information about keynotes, potential topics and further (contact)details can be found via this Erasmus-website.
