Ex Machina: The Paradox of Being Human in the Digital Age

ID : 7548   
« back to classes page
An inquiry into reality and human culture as a co-construct between technology and art. Through the study of film, television, video games, and other cultural products, the course traces how social media and artificial intelligence challenge our understanding of what it means to be human and how social engagement in the digital age is altered by the acceleration of time and the collapse of space. Dr. Kashani will share his latest research for his upcoming book on the art of being human in the digital age through multimedia presentations and will have question and answer time at each lecture (six 2-hour sessions). This course tackles the age old questions of mind/body, consciousness, as well as questioning the nature of reality in the world of social media, and where we are headed in the future of humanity and the ecosystem.
