iD8 Studio at The Gatelodge





On Saturday, March 26th, The Digital Hub will host a panel discussion on how digital technology has already shifted society.

If social media is a collective consciousness are algorithms and the artificial intelligences they power representative of our collective unconscious?

What are often presented as objective data-driven decisions are subject to the implicit biases of the datasets and used in their formulation.

Have we sleepwalked into a world where algorithms designed to keep us engaged with platforms and technologies manipulate us or are we willingly entering a new social mode of prolificity with our eyes wide open?

How has the ability to share and perform our lives through curated displays of imagery changed us? Who owns our digital data and who should be allowed to use it? Do we project fantasies of intelligence and agency onto machines, or can real intelligence lie outside of human bounds?

This panel discussion is held as part of The Digital Hub’s and Robin Price’s collaboration on the public artwork called ‘Do Algorithms Dream of Electronic Shapes?’. The artwork sees a nightly laser projection on St. Patrick’s Tower in the Liberties and explores Dublin 8’s relationship with social media and data. Read more:
