Introduction 活動簡介:

As the study of digital politics continues to grow rapidly, more scholars and students take an interest in the politicisation of the digital sphere and the digitisation of the political field. Dr. John Postill identified four interlinked domains of digital (aka ‘nerd’) politics: digital rights, data activism, social protest, and formal politics and advocated an ethnographic approach to their study. The current boom in the use of ChatGPT and other artificial intelligence (AI) tools raises intriguing questions about their political and policy-making implications. This boom also poses major challenges for ethnographers of digital politics.

In this talk, we'll delve into debates surrounding data activism, automated decision-making, predictive policing, AI as a ‘black box’, and ChatGPT as a ‘bullshit genre’ app. Join us for an exploratory, open-ended session and reflect on your AI experiences.
