DEEP 2021 is digging deeper—remotely!
This year the conversations have been coming to you. Featuring highly knowledgeable guest speakers and engaging discussions, Digging DEEPer events have explored topics such as AI bias, future of work, Indigenous future imaginaries and AI-powered assistive technology. We will be continuing our online We Count Digging DEEPer Series into October 2021. Visit the Events page for the full schedule and check back often for news and updates. We look forward to seeing you at Digging DEEPer events!
To celebrate the anniversary of the We Count Digging Deeper Series, we’re bringing you a special webinar that features an intimate conversation between Microsoft’s Wendy Chisholm and the IDRC’s Jutta Treviranus about the complex relationship between innovative technology and disability, with a focus on artificial intelligence (AI). Drawing on their wealth of knowledge and experience, these panelists will discuss the risks and rewards of AI for people with disabilities, as well as what the future of the industry may hold for the disability community. Register now for the July 22 webinar.
The Metric Society and the Unmeasurable webinar, with Steffen Mau, Virginia Eubanks and Jutta Treviranus in conversation, is now available for viewing! The webinar is a fascinating discussion about the implications of how metrics have become a form of social conditioning, impacting everything from annual university rankings, ratings agencies and fitness tracking technologies to our credit score and health status. Apply for the Learner badge for this event on our Initiatives page.
