Junior Advisory Board 2024: HUMANITIES, TECHNOLOGIES, AND TEMPORALITIES
To apply, you must submit a five-minute video pitch supported by a presentation responding to the following prompt: “Move fast and break things.” For several years, that ethos dominated Silicon Valley. But what is something that shouldn’t be broken, and how do we protect and preserve it?
Innovation, futureproofing, anticipatory governance… These are all prominent terms when it comes to debates about technology in both the private sector and government. The terms also share something in common: they are all future oriented. But what gets lost if we don’t put the future into dialogue with the present and the past? This year’s Junior Advisory Board begins with the premise that it is not technology that drives history, but humans who make it. The humanities prompt us to think about change and continuity in broader, more enriching contexts. As such, they prove to be indispensable in our common effort to harness the positive potential offered by technology and mitigate any harmful effects.
The evaluation will consider your capacity to structure ideas, analytical thinking, creativity, and communication skills. The style, creativity, and format of the presentation is entirely up to you, so show us who you are!
The only requirement for the proposal is that you must use screen and camera modes.
