Dr. Robin James, an affiliate of the Center (and also Associate Professor of Philosophy at UNCC), is participating in an event held by NYU's Institute for Public Knowledge (IPK) on June 3, 2021, titled "Co-Opting AI: Music." This event "will examine how music is entangled with technological innovation, and AI in particular, and how this is linked to the making and re-making of societal structures." It is part of an IPK series that launched in 2019, “Co-Opting AI: Public Conversations About Design, Inequality, and Technology.” For more information about the event, and to RSVP, click here.
IPK's mission is to "bring theoretically serious scholarship to bear on major public issues. Located at NYU, it nurtures collaboration among social researchers in New York and around the world. It builds bridges between university-based researchers and organizations pursuing practical action. It supports communication between researchers and broader publics. And it examines transformations in the public sphere, social science, and the university as a social institution as these change the conditions for public knowledge."
