In late January 2019, your Network Co-ordinator Dr Samantha Kanza attended the Recoding Black Mirror Workshop, which was part of the CPCD Conference 2019. 

This was a one day workshop that focused on the ethical and societal challenges of digital technologies, with a look to considering technological approaches to preventing us ending up in a dystopian future (much like the ones depicted in Black Mirror!). This was a fascinating workshop that focused on the socio-technical issues of AI. This was a great place to promote AI3SD as we are very interested in the ethical and societal issues of AI for Scientific Discovery, and we made some useful contacts here.
