The CFP Spring Workshop will be held the morning of Friday, April 17th on the 6th floor of the Media Lab's building E14 in the Winter Garden and Silverman Skyline Rooms, from 8:30-11:00.
Our meeting theme is "responsible innovation," the premise being the co-evolution of technology and society. We believe that while technology has an impact on society, it is fundamentally a by-product, and thus a reflection of it. To quote Raymond Williams, technology only acquires effective status when it is used for purposes that are already contained in existing social processes. In this meeting we will explore what we identify as the next phase of technology disruption, which is taking us beyond the reorganization of industry ecosystems to the very transformation of our social institutions. We ask what is it about the world today that makes it ripe for viral schools, cryptocurrencies, the uberization of everything (as well as darker phenomena like ISIS), while addressing what we see as the urgent need to make responsible choices re technology and policy, what that actually means, and how to achieve that goal.
