Project Details


A series of workshops to creatively network and collaborate across disciplines. Involving academics from the Departments of Law and Criminology, Management, Engineering and Computer Science, we will explore what intricacies and issues emerge in diverse contexts when digitial algorithms - computer programmes with 'intelligent' technologies like Artificial Intelligence, Chatbots, Datamining - are designed or tasked to manage if not predict the digital workload and behaviour of (a) households; (b) professionals, including within the legal community where human trust and relationships, confidentiality and judgement have been critical; and (c) marginalised communities (unemployed, ill).
