KAPTalks with Vladan Joler on digital technology and development
Join LIVE our #KAPTalks with Vladan Joler, technologist, new media professor and founder of SHARE Lab, a laboratory studying different phenomena that emerged with the development and use of modern technology. The event will be hybrid. Join us on 17th December at 17:00 CET / 16:00 GMT. This lecture starts a mini series of 3 meetings with Vladan Joler:

17th December 2021: "Planetary scale Systems: From the internet packet to the algorithmic factory"

19th January 2022: "Planetary scale systems: Anatomy and geology of media technologies"

16th February 2022: "Planetary scale systems: Engines of new extractivism"

In a networked society data and infrastructures are sources of power, both material and immaterial, and yet they are hard to track down, materialize, understand, or even perceive in their magnitude. The shapes and topographies of those systems represent a reflection of complex geopolitical and economic relations, colonial and neocolonial practices, and one of the modern metrics of power. Our capacity to understand those systems is crucial for our future development. These black boxes, hidden behind the corporate and government walls have defined new forms of labor, exploitation, and generation of the enormous amount of wealth and power. Through the tracerouting of individual Internet packages, metadata analysis, and investigation of algorithms we will discover step by step, the story of physical infrastructure embodied in millions of kilometers of cables, huge impersonal and dehumanized facilities for data storage and analysis, and various parasitic systems of the surveillance economy.

The lecture is hosted by the University of Belgrade / Faculty of Social Sciences.

Once logged in to the webinar you will have an opportunity to pose a text questions to Vladan Joler.
