Who speaks up? – Experiences from
a research conference
Abstract: A crucial part of the research process is taking part in conferences where researchers
exchange and develop ideas. In this talk, I use actual data to show who are their voices during
a recent international education conference. I will discuss consequences for the research community,
and what our students will get to learn in school in the long run. Students of today need to be prepared f
or a digitalised society.
Hence, education has to undergo changes that are based on relevant research on education.
Who constructs our digital society?
Abstract: Why are we still talking about more women in tech? Linnea Rothin will give you the
statistics as well as propose a solution. Also - confirmation bias in tech and why Ai's got hit by #metoo.
Automatic Visual Censoring: from Science-Fiction to Reality..
Abstract: Despite clear concerns with ethics or privacy, automatic visual censoring is a research area addressing
real user needs. While aversion to shocking content is natural, it tends to limit people’s ability to educate themselves or make informed
decisions. Our research has focused on images of medical procedures and has shown that existing image-processing techniques
can reduce the emotional impact of medical procedure images, while, at the same time, preserving important information. In addition,
we have developed a google chrome extension that automatically detects and processes potentially shocking content in the hope that
it will help people inform themselves through media that they know they would otherwise find difficult to watch.
Immersive experiences in the digital age - what’s new about them?
Abstract: Recent development of new immersive technologies has spurred
an increased interest in immersive experiences as a tool for engaging with an audience in new and purposeful ways.
But what does immersion really mean and is there anything essentially new about it? What is getting lost if the
concept of immersion is understood as a mere product of technological development?
