Dans le cadre de ses séminaires de recherche, le laboratoire d’étude des sciences et des techniques (STS Lab) a le plaisir d'accueillir Monsieur Chris Salter, Concordia University.
‘Sensors’, ‘programs in computers’, ‘actuators’ – these three components make up the basic design of any ‘computational artefact.’ Depending upon its material assembly, users deal with a measurement device, computer program, or robotic system. In recent decades, not only have computational artefacts become ubiquitous, but also their contrasting designs have increasingly been advertised, if not crafted, in terms of ‘artificial intelligence’ (AI). So much for the liberal consensus. In turn, the present conversation with Chris Salter takes its cue from his new book, entitled Sensing Machines: How Sensors Shape Our Everyday Life, to locate and linger on ‘sticking points’ when it comes to AI, its discourse and design, as a computational and cultural artefact. In response to Salter’s book presentation, three of his readers, Philippe Sormani, Mylène Tanferri, and Florian Jaton will therefore open the conversation from their respective stances, ethnographic and/or ethnomethodological – a conversation due to span art, science, and technology studies.
