Assessing the impact of emerging technologies on contemporary society and global affairs

This event will be in University College Dublin

Join us for the first annual conference of the International Studies and Emerging Technologies Working Group (ISET).

Emerging technologies, such as cyber and artificial intelligence, have undeniably become a key factor in contemporary society and global affairs. Individuals, communities, groups, states, and international actors alike all face new challenges and opportunities deriving from these technological developments. So far, the study of these topics has been overwhelmingly the remit of the Computer Science and Engineering communities. Research in the Social Sciences and Arts and Humanities (SSAH) has only recently started to engage more systematically in this area. The goal of this conference is to promote SSAH research on the impact of emerging technologies, like cyber and AI, on contemporary society and global affairs.

Travel/accommodation bursaries are available. Please contact Eugenio Lilli: eugenio.lilli@ucd.ie for further information.
