June 4: Xiaowei Wang, Blockchain Chicken Farm
Xiaowei Wang is a technologist, artist, and the Creative Director for Logic Magazine. Their upcoming book, Blockchain Chicken Farm, explores how technology is penetrating rural China, from AI-generated pork to disruptive luxury counterfeits. On Thursday, we'll discuss globalization, sinofuturism, and the stories in tech that aren't getting written.
June 11: Ben Green, The Smart Enough City
Ben Green is a researcher at the AI Now Institute, an affiliate of the Berkman Klein Center, and PhD candidate at Harvard. His book The Smart Enough City asks how our cities can use technology to advance democracy and equity rather than holding it back. Join our discussion to hear about Sidewalk Labs, data governance, and new frameworks for civic technology.
