Beschrijving van het evenement

Beschrijving

The most competitive domain in global technology is the development of AI, that holds the key, as many believe, to economic, political and technological dominance for the parties managing to wield its power. China stands at the forefront of these developments, in direct competition with various states and tech companies, and is developing a specific Chinese branch ofmanmade intelligence (as the exact English translation of the mandarin phrase for AI would be) based on the unique techno-political circumstances in the Chinese geozone.

This Vertical Atlas focuses on the implications of AI developments in Chinese city management, political and economic governance as well as in the current Chinese cultural imagination. With presentations by Shuang Lu Frost, Harvard University anthropologist, and Chen Qiufan (aka Stanley Chen), renowned sci-fi writer.

Stanley Chan

Chen Qiufan (A.K.A. Stanley Chan) Chinese representative speculative fiction author, translator, curator. Chan is known for his stylistic combination of SF realism and new wave. His works have been translated into many languages and received multiple domestic and international awards. His representative works include “Waste Tide", “Future Diseases”and“The Algorithm for Life”. Now he's running Thema Mundi Studio on developing Scifi relevant contents.

Shuang L. Frost

Shuang L. Frost is a social anthropologist at Harvard University (Ph.D. candidate, 2020). She works on digital technology, political economy and social policy with a regional focus on China.
