Debate “Data Rush”

WAMS is organising a debate among scientists and artists. With this debate we want to explore the theme “Data Rush” from both the artistic and scientific perspective. We will discuss a number of questions. What are the underlying problems we (citizens, society, business, government) are facing, and what is our way out? Is ‘privacy’ the right frame to discuss the challenges we are facing? Or is there a more general disconnect with the technology that is increasingly surrounding, nurturing and nudging us? Can we give ourselves more control over this technology? Should we even try? Can art help science, and can science help art? If so, how?

(The debate was a great success. You can read a summary of the debate here.)
