Abstract submission deadline: April 30, 2019

Language Games is the title of a forthcoming issue with LEA edited by Lanfranco Aceti, Sheena Calvert, and Hannah Lammin. We invite a range of submissions initially in the form of abstract. The description of the issue is below with all the related information for submission.

Language is a technology, as theorists including Martin Heidegger and Marshall McLuhan have argued, and yet its manifestation in both speech and writing is fundamentally human-centred: anthropological. However, speech and writing are rapidly becoming an interface not just between humans and the ‘out there’, as traditional philosophies of language assert, but between humans and machines, and machines and other machines. As a result, the usual presuppositions we might make about language as a technology which is predicated on human utterance and man-made material transcription is rapidly shifting, and in the process the line between human and machine is becoming less clear.

Current developments in computing, and the rise of artificial intelligence (AI), are bringing about a new perceptual transformation of the technology called language, and offer us an opportunity to reflect on what we value in language and how it continues to form (and inform) our life-world. The mass availability of intelligent personal assistants—such as Apple’s Siri, IBM’s Watson and Amazon’s Alexa, and Google’s Duplex—has brought (and promises to further introduce) speaking machines into everyday life for many people, and makes it clear that such interfaces will be increasingly indistinguishable from human voice. These emergent systems replicate the nuances, inflections, and vernacular qualities of speech to a degree that has made many commentators uncomfortable (invoking a linguistic/social version of Masahiro Mori’s “Uncanny Valley”). Previous barriers to acceptance of machine-produced language, such as lack of nuance, context, and the subtleties of timing associated with human language are beginning to be surpassed, such that the distinction between them dissolves.

This raises ethical questions about language, and its ongoing role in human (and machine) interaction. These technologies also threaten to replace large areas of voice-related employment, such as service industry call centre roles, and so involve the implications of automation more generally. In the fields of computer science and technology there is already well-developed research producing systems that are able to generate ever more “natural” linguistic fluency. Our aim is to add another dimension to this research, by asserting the importance of a dialogue between humanities/science/creative disciplines in addressing the implications of speaking machines. If (as many claim), language is of singular importance to the constitution of the human; the migration of language to machines provides an opportunity for us to interrogate the value of language at an ontological level.

Current research in the digital humanities and the philosophy of technology considers a range of questions, including the nature of human/machine intelligence, algorithmic agency, the narratives used to contextualize AI in the broader social context, and the ethics of using machines to mediate various aspects of our personal lives. Yet, the complex relationship between language and intelligence that has preoccupied philosophers since Aristotle has rarely been taken as a central research theme in critical discussions of AI. This journal aims to fill this gap by creating an interdisciplinary platform for reflection on the implications of AI as a linguistic technology.

The goal of this issue is to bring together a range of perspectives—including those from philosophy, linguistics, computer sciences, digital humanities and the creative arts—in order to examine in detail the particular role of language in creating the interface between humans and AI/machine learning technologies. It will address languages’ role in getting us to accept these technologies, investigating how the creation of believable/convincing linguistic parallels to human forms of language (via mimicry), invites us to engage with machines as social beings, and builds trust in machine utterances (written and spoken). By approaching computational technologies through a linguistic lens we hope to establish that language needs to become a central (not incidental) aspect of the discourses around the ethics of AI and machine learning.

We invite submissions addressing questions including, but not limited to:

  • What is the ontological status of language when it is no longer made by humans, but by machines?
  • How do the frameworks that ground our understanding of ethics need to be rethought to account for the social effects of linguistic machines?
  • What epistemological models do we need to understand the relationship between ‘natural’ language and computer language/code?
  • Do machinic languages require us to re-think the relationship between language and cognition?
  • Do computational systems have the agency for linguistic creativity, and what poetic forms might emerge from them and/or our interaction with them?
  • What new pragmatics of language arise from our interactions with non-human linguistic agents?
  • What methodologies—creative, philosophical, scientific—can we develop to address these questions, and to communicate between disciplines?

Call: GOODTECHS 2019 – 5th EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good

Call for Papers

GOODTECHS 2019
5th EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good
September 25-27, 2019
Valencia, Spain
http://goodtechs.eu

Submissions due: April 10, 2019 [extended]

SCOPE

By social good we refer to a “good” or a service that benefits the largest number of people in the largest possible way. Some classic examples of social goods are, of course, healthcare, safety, environment, democracy, and human rights, but we can add to this classic list even communication, art, entertainment and much more.

In this context, the popularity of portable computing devices, like smartphones, tablets, or smart watches combined with the emergence of many other small smart objects with computational, sensing and communication capabilities coupled with the popularity of social networks and new human-technology interaction paradigms is creating unprecedented opportunities for each of us to do something useful, ranging from a single person to the whole world. Furthermore, Internet of Things, Smart-cities, distributed sensing and Fog computing are representative examples of modern ICT paradigms that aim to describe a dynamic and globally cooperative infrastructure built upon objects’ intelligence and self-configuring capabilities. These connected objects are finding their way into our pockets, vehicles, urban areas and infrastructure, thus becoming the very texture of our society and providing us the possibility, but also the responsibility, to shape it.

In GOODTECHS we are hence interested in experiences with the design, implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects and technologies for social good. Clearly, we are not considering only the so called first world as the scenario for this evolution; we also refer to those areas where ICT is currently less widespread, hoping that it may represent a societal development opportunity rather than a source for further divide.

Topics

Authors are solicited to submit original, previously unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to topic areas:

  • App concepts and technologies for different mobile platforms
  • Blockchain for social good
  • Communication between mobile devices
  • Content Distribution
  • E-learning solutions
  • Data collection, organization and dissemination methods
  • Delay-tolerant aerial networks and ferrying approaches
  • Deployment and field-testing
  • Digital tools for art and feelings

Call: 4TU.Ethics Bi-annual Conference on the Ethics of Disruptive Technologies

Call for Papers

4TUEthicsEDT: 4TU.Ethics Bi-annual Conference on the Ethics of Disruptive Technologies
Technical University of Eindhoven
Eindhoven, Netherlands
November 7-8, 2019
https://www.easychair.org/cfp/4TUEthics-EDT

Abstract registration deadline: June 15, 2019
Submission deadline: October 1, 2019

Throughout history, technology has been a driver of social change. The technologies of the industrial revolution played a crucial role in shaping modern society, and society has since then continued to be shaped by technological innovations. The conference focuses on technologies that will not just change specific domains or practices for which they were designed, but that will change our life in a much broader sense. They are called socially disruptive technologies (SDTs). SDTs transform everyday life, social institutions, cultural practices, and the organisation of the economy, business, and work. They may even affect our fundamental beliefs, rights, and values. Historical examples of such technologies include the printing press, the steam engine, electric lighting, the computer, and the Internet. Modern examples include digital technologies, bio- and brain technologies, and environmental and sustainable technologies.

The new generation of SDTs has a number of characteristics. First, it promises almost complete control over atoms, bits, genes, and neurons, allowing for everything to be reconstituted or redesigned, including human beings. Second, it is characterized by a convergence of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres, resulting in new technologies at the intersection of information technology, biotechnology/biomedicine, nanotechnology, and neuroscience/cognitive science, such as synthetic biology and brain-computer interfaces. Finally, these technologies emerge in the context of a number of grand societal challenges, such as combating climate change and meeting the UN Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs), which will actually require a range of technological and societal trans­formations.

The stakes are high. These new SDTs could bring great benefits to our society: opening up new medical perspectives, enabling new forms of political participation, or contributing to the solution of our sustainability problems. But they could also bring great harm if not properly developed and implemented (Jasanoff 2016). They could curtail our autonomy and privacy, damage our ecology, and exacerbate divisions and inequalities in society. That is why normative frameworks are so important: which values and normative principles should guide their development and introduction, and which benefits do we want for individuals and society?

Few will contest that novel technologies raise ethical questions that require ethical reflection and guidance. But a key problem in the case of SDTs is that these technologies are also challenging the very concepts and values that we normally appeal to in our ethical thinking. There are three sub-themes of the conference. Each of these sub-themes focuses on a number of key concepts that are being challenged by these socially disruptive technologies.

  1. The Human Condition: concepts that are basic to our moral self-understanding, such as (moral) agency, autonomy, human interdependence, and responsibility;
  2. The Future of a Free and Fair Society: concepts that form the basis of our political, social and legal institutions, such as democracy, public and private, justice, and equality;
  3. Nature, Life and Human Intervention: concepts and distinctions that we use to order our world: such as distinctions between natural and artificial, humans and machines, and agents and physical systems.

The format of the conference is as follows: there are keynote speakers and presentations of papers in parallel sessions. Each session will have a 20-30 minutes presentation, followed by 10-15 minutes of discussion. In addition there will be poster sessions.

Senior and junior researchers working in the field are invited to submit abstracts for the conference. Abstracts should be 500 words, excluding a short bibliography. These abstracts will be evaluated by the programme committee of the conference. Decisions will be made before the end of June. Papers that are not accepted for a parallel session may be presented as a poster.

Taskforces of 4TU.Ethics and others are invited to submit a special session proposal for the conference, with 3-4 presentations on a particular theme.

Call for Papers

Media, Communication and Cultural Studies Association Post Graduate Network (MeCCSA PGN) Conference 2019
July 1-2, 2019

‘Delivery technologies become obsolete and get replaced; media, on the other hand, evolve.’ -Henry Jenkins (2006: 13)

The changes that have taken place within any aspect of media over the last several decades have been immense; some areas of the field are all but unrecognisable following such drastic adaptations and alterations. It is these adaptations, these changes, the evolution of media itself that is the theme of this conference. ‘Media evolution is a cultural process; it does not follow a grand plan either, but sometimes the direction and speed of the development can be – more or less – planned’ (Stöber, 2004: 485-486). However, ‘recent developments in literature as well as in literary theory… have posed new challenges to established theories and concepts’ (Reinerth and Thon, 2016: 11), and as such we must ourselves evolve both creatively, and academically. Elements of media evolutions are the focus of this conference but such a topic can be interpreted in a multitude of ways; fields of research such as narratology, practice-based research, creative practice, film studies, game studies, performance analysis, etc. are but a few of many examples.

Marshall McLuhan stated that ‘the personal and social consequences of any medium – that is, of any extension of ourselves – result from the new scale that is introduced into our affairs by each extension of ourselves, or by any new technology’ (1964: 7), and therefore as technology evolves, media evolves with it. For the MeCCSA PGN Conference 2019 we invite proposals for presentations, performances, or media works (maximum of fifteen minutes) that address or contribute to any of the areas of research mentioned above but also any further fields that might apply. We will also consider workshop/panel proposals (up to fifty minutes) that address such elements of media with particular interest to practical application within the industry. Proposals may be from an academic discipline but we are equally welcoming of proposals from outside the academy especially if submitted by those with experience within the industry.

Many fields of research within the greater disciplines have the potential to overlap, and we welcome submissions from interdisciplinary sources and experimental practitioners. Though candidates are not limited to this list, below are some example areas that candidates may present on:

  • Evolution of Media – The examination of how differing forms of media have evolved and adapted with passing time and how these changes affected both the industry and creative output.
  • Evolution of the Creator -The examination of how the creators of media have needed to adapt and change over time; script writers, novel writers, short-story writers, directors, producers, etc.
  • Evolution of the Recipient – The examination of the evolution of the audience. Impact of changes that have taken place in film and TV audiences, video-game players, internet users, students in a classroom, readers of novels and short-stories, listeners to podcasts and radio broadcasts, etc.
  • Evolution of Practice – Examinations of changes in the creative process, how creators view their own work critically and build from it, including in particular practice-based research within academia.
  • Evolution of Communication – The examination of communication in relation to media and the ways in which such communications have evolved and adapted with changing technology and content.
  • Evolution of Culture – The examination of evolution of wider culture in regards to media, changes within society or expectations that have in turn altered the forms of media popularity. This could be narrowed to cover only a sub-culture or portion of society at large, including minorities.
  • Evolution of Experience – The examination of how media has evolved to heighten its impact and the ways in which it can affect a recipient(s). How experiencing a form of media has changed with time and technology.
  • Evolution of Enhancement – How forms of media have enhanced one another in order to change the ways in which it is interpreted and received, elements of ergodic literature, virtual reality systems, augmented reality systems, etc.
