Professor Lise Autogena invited to advise on Big Data and Digital Transformation at the EU Joint Research Centre

Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art at Sheffield Hallam University Lise Autogena has been invited as an expert speaker by the Science Development Centre of the European Union’s Joint Research Centre to give two keynote presentations on the subject of Big Data and Digital Transformation.

Lise will be joined by long-term artistic collaborator Josua Portway at The Preparatory Workshop for Resonances III on 20 October 2017 at The Leonardo da Vinci Science and Technology Museum in Milan. As an advisor, Lise will have the opportunity to inject new ideas into EU policy making.

The Joint Research Centre is the in-house science service of the European Commission and supports policy makers with robust science. With the realisation that in a fast developing globalized world processes are becoming increasingly complex and require innovative, trans-disciplinary thinking, the JRC has initiated the Resonances programme, to invite artists to collaborate with scientists and experts at the Joint Research Centre, in order for the JRC to provide EU policy makers with analysis looked at from different angles and perspectives.

The focus of Resonance III will be what Big Data is, how it is transforming our society, our work, economies, bodies, agriculture, security and thinking. Lise Autogena and Joshua Portway will be giving two keynote presentations on ‘New Aesthetics for a Data-Saturated World’ and Some Games’ 

Professor Lise Autogena is an artist and a Professor of Cross-Disciplinary Art at the Cultural Communication and Computing Research Institute at Sheffield Hallam University. Find out more about her work here.
