Researcher Tejas Kotha from the Department of Information and Service Management (ISM) at the School of Business is currently pursuing his Ph.D. studies. Now, he has started together with Silvia Masiero, Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, a new podcast series called “Sociotechs”. The podcast aims to explore critical intersections of technology and social issues, with a view of understanding data-generated harm in the light of imagining fairer technologies. In essence they would be inviting guests from IS, ICT4D and Data Justice communities to discuss critical issues and research.
