Speaker : Fast Algorithms, Slow Things

Activity: Academic talk or presentation typesInvited talk

Abstract

This talk explores the temporal conditions that we face as digital networks exchange information faster than we can think, speak and write. The focus of the talk anticipates the speed of algorithms that are able to interrogate data so fast that it allows unforeseen patterns and opportunities to be offered to us in the near future. The presentation will use case studies from recent design research projects including: 'Objects that will develop ideas for us', 'Collaborative tools developed for transport research in which objects instruct humans to move them around', and the 'Take Me I'm Yours Opera: Beyond the Supermarkets' which features objects as actors in a ‘theatre of things’.
