Critical AI & Crisis Interrogatives (CRAI-CIS) Seminar
About the Seminars
The CRAI-CIS* Seminars engage emerging work across critical AI, Human Computer Interaction (HCI), participatory design, and crisis-related research. The seminars seek to invoke dialogues on how computational, human-centred, and social sciences perspectives can offer new insights and methods for inclusive approaches and critical inquiry with societal impact.
Each event features invited speakers who share distinct perspectives, ongoing research, methods, and challenges for future work in a 45 minutetalk, followed by Q&A and space for mingling and networking. The talks will be recorded for open access in the future.
In 2022, the seminars will be hosted monthly on Wednesdays 13:30 - 15:00 from February 9th. The sessions are hosted online for the time being and you can access them with this Zoom link. When the situation permits, the talks will be hosted as hybrid events (in-person and online) in the Aalto Computer Science building (Konemiehentie 2). Tea/coffee and cookies will be offered. Please register for the seminars you wish to attend in-person or online.
