The international conference Moral Machines? Ethics and Politics of the Digital World (Helsinki Collegium for Advanced Studies, 6-8 March 2019) will discuss the urgent „question of the ethical, moral and political consequences of digitalization“.
Erich Hörl (Lüneburg, PI of Elements of a Critical Theory of Media and Participation) is one of the confirmed speakers at the conference.
As the organizers state: „No technology is just a tool, all technologies mark their users and environments. Digital technologies, however, mark them much more intimately than any previous ones have done since they promise to think in our place – so that they do not only enhance the homo sapiens’ most distinctive feature but also relieve them from it.“ Read more.
