My name is Luis de Miranda and I am a philosopher based in Stockholm, Sweden, and doing research at the Örebro University. Together with Prof. Alessandro Saffiotti, an AI and Robotics Exert, we are initiating CREA, a cross-disciplinary research hub around the notion of Anticipation.
This project, based at the University of Örebro, in partnership with Unesco’s Chair in Anticipatory Systems, bridges the humanities and computer science to examine how we could develop a model for anticipation that would be more sustainable and holistic than current models. In other words, we want to see how we can use data and AI-Humanities for more creative, participative or empowering forms of anticipation and co-creation.
Since we are at the very early stage of the project, which will imply major funding applications in 2019, we are now starting to identify possible and meaningful partners for collaboration. I'd be happy to hear from Edgeryders and discuss potential collaboration.
Our first actionable event is this forthcoming conference: https://www.oru.se/english/schools/humanities-education-and-social-sciences/conferences/anticipation2019/
