(Looking for the unoffical blogosphere version of the speaker list for MiT5? Here you go!)
I’m off (in a matter of, well, months) to the States for not one but two conferences at the end of April. First up is MiT5 (Media in Transition 5, April 26-29), at MIT, which I think will be exciting although the program’s not posted yet. Luca Rossi from The Truants will be there, I know that, and I’m on a panel about “Appropriation and Collaboration in Digital Writing” with Nick Montfort and Scott Rettberg.

Then on May 3, I’ll be at ELO 2007: The Future of Electronic Literature, a symposium organised by the Electronic Literature Organisation and MITH which is to be held at the University of Maryland.

With a stop-over in New York, and winding up in Chicago, we’ll be visiting four major US cities in under two weeks. Yeeha!! And after that I’m not going anywhere work-related until DAC 2007 in Perth. Eek, the deadline for full papers is very, very soon for that…

    I will be attending at least one, possibly both, of those as well.

    Looking forward to seeing you, Jill, and maybe Steve too 🙂

    (Oh, and the link to MITH in the posting here is scrambled.)

    Thanks Matt, fixed that link now 🙂

    I’ll be at MIT5, see you then!

    Oh really? Awesome!! Damn, I wish they’d get their program up. I was thinking that it would likely be a very small, local event since there’s still no program or list of speakers just six weeks before the conference, but you’re coming from Australia, Scott and I are coming from Norway, Luca Rossi (whom I know from our WoW researchers’ guild) is coming from Italy – that’s not so local. I wonder who else will be there?

Four visual registers for imaginaries of machine vision

I’m thrilled to announce another publication from our European Research Council (ERC)-funded research project on Machine Vision: Gabriele de Setaand Anya Shchetvina‘s paper analysing how Chinese AI companies visually present machine vision technologies. They find that the Chinese machine vision imaginary is global, blue and competitive.  De Seta, Gabriele, and Anya Shchetvina. “Imagining Machine […]

Do people flock to talks about ChatGPT because they are scared?

Whenever I give talks about ChatGPT and LLMs, whether to ninth graders, businesses or journalists, I meet people who are hungry for information, who really want to understand this new technology. I’ve interpreted this as interest and a need to understand – but yesterday, Eirik Solheim said that every time […]
