About this Event

This event has been postponed until further notice due to COVID-19.

Brave Conversations Sydney is run in partnership with the Intersticia Foundation and Seer Data & Analytics

Humans, Values, Technology - Web Science in Practice

Brave Conversations was created to bridge the gap between research and social practice in terms of the social impacts of emergent information technologies. We call this Web Science, the Theory and Practice of Social Machines. You probably just call it ‘managing your technology’.

Social interaction technologies underpin virtually every aspect of our daily lives but how often do we stop to think about the impact they are having, and question the day to day choices that we make. Brave Conversations seeks to unpack some of these choices and provide the space where the humans in the room can more fully understand, explore and investigate the world we are creating and its impact on our selves, our communities, our societies and our planet.

After having held Brave Conversations events around the globe we are seeing similarities and differences in the ways that different cultures and communities use technologies, their access to data and information, and their ability to think through the consequences.

In Sydney, we will explore how technologies are impacting our lives, communities and democracy by considering the spread of disinformation during the summer bushfires, exciting solutions to help bridge the data divide and improve lives and the local growing civic tech industry and among many other topics.
