Welcome to this seminar with Cambridge-trained sociologist Anthony Elliot, the author of The Culture of AI: Everyday Life and the Digital Revolution (2019). In this book, Elliott argues that the AI revolution is not so much about cyborgs and super-robots in the future, but rather massive changes in the here-and-now of everyday life.

In this seminar, Elliot will give two keynote lectures that will be commented by Christian Fiesler and Atle Midttun.
