        Subject: Inaugural Willard McCarty Fellowship event / 28th March 2019/ King's College London

Dear All,

We are launching our inaugural Willard McCarty Fellowship event 'Monopolies
of Intelligence: Questioning the Political Economy of AI'.

This event will be introduced by Professor Willard McCarty himself
(Emeritus Professor of Humanities Computing, KCL) and will be followed by a
panel discussion with WM Fellow Leif Weatherby (Associate Professor of
German, NYU, Arts & Science),  Nick Srnicek (DDH, King's College London),
and  Mercedes Bunz (DDH, King's College London).

Framed by short position papers, this panel will discuss the implications
and ramifications of the political economy of AI,  which is rarely
addressed in the debate revolving around Intelligence Systems hyped as our
future saviour or feared for their biases.

For more information on speakers and their talks, and to register for the
event, please visit our Eventbrite page at https://bit.ly/2TCicDz.

Date: Thu, 28 March 2019
Time: 16:00 - 18:00 GMT
Where: King's College London Strand WC2R 2LS
Room:  Bush House (NorthEast), Lecture Theatre 3 [BH(NE) 0.01]
