June 3rd, 10AM BST

The SHERPA project explores deeper insights into the use of Smart Information Systems (i.e., the combination of artificial intelligence and big data analytics).

In this webinar, Tijmen Schep from Pineapple Jazz will present ‘Hands-on design with AI and Ethics.’

About The Webinar

When we talk about ethics and AI, it’s easy to develop a high-level list of recommendations. But in the world of designers, makers and coders, these guidelines aren’t always easy to translate into hands-on choices. Designers and design students alike enjoy learning from hands-on practical examples and case studies.

In this webinar, we dive into the choices made and the lessons learned when building an ethically sound Smart Information System: the Candle Smart Home. It’s a demonstrator of a home of the future that offers all the features you’d expect like voice control, but it keeps all the data in your home, and doesn’t require any internet connection. In January, Candle won a coveted Dutch Privacy Award.

The webinar will also go into the other creations that artist, designer and technology critic Tijmen Schep has developed or is in the process of developing for SHERPA. By oscilating between the worlds of art, academia and design, Tijmen can bring a holistic, sometimes unexpected perspective on the issues around Smart Information Systems. Expect sneak previews of the hilarious things he is currently working on.
