You are invited to attend this Workshop presented by the Hawke EU Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence and Network and UniSA Justice & Society.
The digital revolution is fundamentally changing how people interact with technologies and reshaping the social world, including by promoting new forms of autonomous mobilities. The Italian philosopher Massimo Durante has argued that the “computational powers” driving this reworlding of society, expressed through artificial intelligence systems, algorithms and other computational models, are "adapting the world and its representation to the exercise of their power." However, Director of the Emerging Technologies Research Lab, Professor Sarah Pink, argues that people engage with emerging technologies in highly complex ways and “without attending to the social, sensory, affective and creative ways that people innovate with technologies in an experiential world we will never understand the possibilities of future mobilities.”
This Workshop, organized by the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Network - Cooperative, Connected and Automated Mobility: EU and Australasian Innovations (CCAMEU) – at the University of South Australia, asks fundamental questions about experimentation in the reworlding of mobilities arising in the wake of artificial intelligence. Addressing shifts from the car-based dominant system of twentieth century mobilities to the emerging automated networks of mobilities in the twenty-first century, the Workshop considers the formidable technological, economic, social, organizational and global problems associated with the ‘engineering’ of a new system of automated mobilities. From issues of ‘carbon power’ to infrastructural funding, the central focus concerns the many problems and dilemmas relating to reworlding mobilities within the technological frameworks of AI, machine learning, big data, advanced robotics and accelerating automation.
The Workshop intends to address these contentious topics head on, and provide a forum for vibrant discussion about future directions in both AI and mobilities, and crucially, in research endeavours that aim to establish meaningful links between the two. The format throughout the day will be dialogue, with the following keynotes to frame the conversations:
Massimo Durante is Professor in Philosophy of Law and Legal Informatics at the Department of Law, University of Turin, Italy. He is coordinator of the Turin Unit of Research for the Law, Science and Technology Joint Doctorate: Rights of the Internet of Everything. His current research concerns issues of law and technology and digital governance from a legal, ethical, and epistemological perspective. Professor Sarah Pink is Director of the Emerging Technologies Research Lab at Monash University, which undertakes critical interdisciplinary and international research into the social, cultural and experiential dimensions of the design, use and futures of new and emerging technologies. Current projects investigate autonomous driving vehicles, Mobility as a Service, digital energy futures, and digital technology use in everyday life.
