Event description

Description

We are proud to invite you to the second in line of the alumni lecture series. With this series of events we would like to inspire current Media Technology students and bring together alumni. The goal of these events is to bridge the gap between Media Technology students and alumni from different fields. The second event will bring us alumni who work in the field of research and will take place at the venue of the Semester Project exhibition.


Are you a student?

So you have had an interesting time spent with art, technology and a collaboration of both. Maybe only one semester, maybe four or more. No matter what, undoubtedly you thought at some point "What's next?", Alumni events group to the rescue! We will provide you with some thought triggering, horizon broadening, synaps stimulating lectures.

About the speakers

Zane Kripe
Zane Kripe is PhD candidate at Leiden University’s Institute of Cultural Anthropology and Development Sociology. Her research is on geek culture and ideas about technological futures in Southeast Asia, in particular Singapore. She contributes also to the Leiden Anthropology Blog. Before completing the Media Technology MSc program, Zane obtained a BA in Political Science at Riga Stradins University.

In the talk Zane will tell how her Media Technology degree got her to do research at hackerspaces and start-up incubators across Southeast Asia, and why she thinks having great colleagues is way more important than having great research proposals.

David Graus
David Graus works at FD Mediagroep, where he is the lead data scientist on two projects that apply artificial intelligence to personalize/summarize business and financial news and radio. He holds a PhD in information retrieval and natural language processing from the University of Amsterdam, an MSc in Media Technology (obviously...), and a BA in Media & Culture. With a strong opinion on filter bubbles, algorithmic discrimination, and the general fear of AI, David regularly voices his professional thoughts as part of the public debate.
