Learning Under Algorithmic Conditions

Updated: Apr 6, 2023

Contingency, Control, & Creativity

April 18-20, 2023 ~ Adelphi Manhattan Center

This interdisciplinary conference will bring together different perspectives from across the humanities and sciences to discuss the nature of learning under algorithmic conditions.

Conference focus. This three-day working conference provides a forum for collaborative and applied philosophical inquiry, exploring the ways that contingency, control and creativity are at work under algorithmic conditions.

This alliterative cluster of three key concepts is meant to keep us focused on:

  • the play of contingency at the heart of speculative-mathematical models

  • the practices of control in digital governance and bodily subjection, and

  • the force of creativity and art in resisting and repurposing data and digital media.

This conference invites critical and creative approaches to the following questions:

How are theories of learning and cognition reconfigured through computational practices? How are doubt, uncertainty and abstraction recast in machine learning? What kinds of artful algorithmic experiments shed light on digital life? In what ways is expertise newly linked to neuro-symbolic imaginaries? How are environment, body, affect, and sensation designed by various digital pedagogies? How does education policy mobilize algorithmic self-regulation? How should we make sense of the incomputable in digital learning environments? How might algorithmic plausible reasoning shed light on posthuman eco-cognition?
