With the rise of artificial intelligence & rapid advance of new communications platforms, the world is experiencing rapid technological change. How people making decisions about the direction of this change think about the work they are doing is little understood, though. Based on four years of ethnographic research in a technology company, Dr. Joshua Rubin (Bates College, Anthropology) will open this black box & show how decision makers think about what users will see, what they will experience, & how they will interact with one another on these platforms.

Joshua D. Rubin is a socio-cultural anthropologist who studies the politics of art & aesthetics. His research examines the representational boundaries of violence, paying particular attention to the conditions in which presentations of violence are taken as dangerous or not. To date, his work has focused on three domains of social life that feature highly ambiguous presentations of violence: sports, video games, & art.
