In this episode we are joined by Karamjit S. Gill, Founder and Editor of AI&Society. Gill discusses his journey with AI&Society how efforts were focused on filling a vital gap – one that was leaving people in marginalized communities out of the dialogue for social context surrounding art, science and technology. Since then, his work as a Professor and Editor have continued to foster the development and structure needed for people from diverse backgrounds and disciplines to come together and share ideas. He considers the pandemic to be a pause that still invites us all together to talk about critical issues and bridge these gaps of distances. His advice to media students and artists during this time is to engage with technology for what it can do for you, and not what you can do with it.

This is a very special conversation and is not to be missed.
