Anouk joined the EASST conference in Madrid from July 6t – 8th – the European Association for the Study of Science and Technology.
This year’s theme was ‘Politics of Technoscientific Futures’ – and Anouk presented part of her PhD research on socio-technical controversies during the panel on AI controversies. Specifically, she presented our tool ‘Future Frictions’ as a design intervention to actualize, identify and discuss socio-technical controversies in the smart city context. This intervention brings insights from STS, Speculative Design and Ethics of Technology together in order to stimulate ethical deliberation on smart city developments.
