More about the workshop

Every day there’s a news story about the overreach of technology harming society or individuals. In each case, the technology was originally envisioned, marketed, and sold as something beneficial and desirable. However, the lack of imagination around unintended harms that technologies bring is proving, over and over again, to have real repercussions. In this session we use dystopian storytelling to speculate potential harms of technology and open a gateway to better imaginaries.
