Dear List,

The upcoming online event from the Institute of Advanced Studies (IAS) and
Loughborough University may be of interest to you:

‘AI: Debating the Impacts, Crafting the Futures' will take place on Tuesday 5
July 2022 from 10:30 am - 3:30 pm (UK time / GMT+1).

As part of the IAS Annual Theme 'AI: Facts, Fictions, Futures', this virtual
event will bring together a range of academics to discuss the Impact and Future
of AI

Voices in the academia, technology industry and civil society are increasingly
critical of the implications raised by the growing pervasiveness and ubiquity of
AI in all domains of social, economic and political life. From racial bias and
discrimination to politically motivated decision-making algorithms, a plethora
of high-profile cases appear to justify the critique that after all, the design
and deployment of AI is all too human, hence subject to human bias and fallacy.
As we approach the closing of the IAS Annual Theme series on AI: Facts,
Fictions, Futures, this event will bring together academics in the social
sciences, humanities and technology studies to debate the current impacts of AI
and suggest principles for alternative futures.

Convened by:  Dr Amalia Sabiescu, Dr Lise Jaillant & Dr Adrian Leguina

preliminary programme below and here:

Connected Past Heraklion 2022
Networks in the archaeology of the ancient Aegean
August 31 – September 2, 2022

We are excited to welcome you to Heraklion for the 2022 Connected Past
conference organized by the Heraklion Archaeological Museum and the University
of Toronto. The theme for this year is: Networks in the archaeology of the
ancient Aegean.

The ancient Aegean and Mediterranean have been key testing grounds for the
development of network concepts and methods in archaeology. A distinctive
feature of network analysis in these areas is its uptake among both
prehistorians and ancient historians, with studies ranging from the Neolithic to
Late Antique. This two-day conference brings together scholars working on all
periods in the Aegean for an exchange of ideas, methods, and results.

Join us in Heraklion, Crete from August 31 through September 2nd at the
Heraklion Conference Centre.

Register here <> *(please note that
registration fees will be collected later after registration. Details
forthcoming.) Registration fees: €40 (€20 for graduate students)

In addition to the talks, we will also host a practical workshop, offered by The
Connected Past group, at which interested researchers can learn some of the
basics of network science in practice. This will take place two days before the
conference (i.e., August 30 & 31, 2022). Details forthcoming.
