Cities for Change
Change the world, start with the city!
Transition Talks, part 5: Digital Infrastructures in the City - How Can Communities Benefit?
Datafication, algorithms and AI shape how we live and work and impact power structures and distribution of wealth in the city. The current digital environment presents many urgent challenges, such as the lack of control of personal data and invasions of privacy, the monopolization of the internet by big tech, surveillance capitalism, inequality and the growing gig economy.

In this talk we investigate how we can challenge the current dynamics and move from the reign of the hyperindividual user and big tech dominance to collective solidarity. Speakers will reflect on how the digital sphere can contribute to positive systems change instead of reinforcing the current extractive and unjust economic system and power relations.
