The relationship between automation and human work is a longstanding area of concern and reflection, and raises questions around public policy and across disciplinary boundaries. The use of ‘crowdsourced’ efforts and the increasing diversity of contributors in human-machine interactions presents particular challenges. Together these raise complex questions that have technical, social and ethical implications.

Automating the crowd is a one day workshop on 22 January 2019, which will bring together participants from neuroscience, digital humanities, sociology, health and other disciplines to shape the public debate around these challenges. 

Spaces for the workshop are limited, apply now. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the organisers. 

Application deadline: Monday 3 December 2018
