Wednesday, February 13, 2019 @ 12:15 pm - 1:15 pm

Tufts University Art Galleries kicks off its new series of weekday lunchtime talks with Nick Seaver, Assistant Professor of Anthropology and Science, Technology and Society.┬áPrompted by the intertwined themes of technology and embodied experience in the current Tufts Art Galleries exhibition “Harry Dodge: Works of Love,” Seaver will present a new talk on Algorithms and/as Culture.┬áThe algorithms that shape culture, filtering what we see and hear, are often understood as inhuman forces. Explore how these systems, from music recommenders to personalized newsfeeds, are full of people who impart their own points of view on the software they build.
