Guest scholar:  Steven Jones, University of South Florida

 

How have technological changes changed the ways we think about our world and how we interact with people, data, and objects (and the networks that connect them)? Ten to fifteen years ago, according to novelist William Gibson, cyberspace everted—turned itself inside out, as the network spilled out into the physical world we move through every day. Increasingly ubiquitous technologies—smartphones, the so-called Internet of Things, Augmented Reality, 3D printing, cryptocurrency, and Artificial Intelligence—have colonized the world of everyday experience. In this seminar, we’ll focus on some of the cultural, political, and ethical questions raised by that shift, questions about security, privacy, community, and what it means to be human.
