Join the Dublin Machine Learning group, ML Dublin, on the 27th November at the Trinity Long Room Hub when the next meet-up will be hosted by the Human+ team.
The Machine Learning MeetUps are a last-Monday-of-the-month meet-up group open to professionals and students interested in Machine Learning. There are presentations by selected guest speakers on different topics, as well as providing a great opportunity to meet like minded people, researchers, engineers from industry and academia for networking.
Speakers from the ADAPT Centre will give an overview of our understanding of what ‘the metaverse’ is today. Then Dr Kata Szita, a cognitive science researcher specialising in extended reality technologies, will address how virtual multiuser environments like the metaverse define identity as well as exploring the dangers and prospects in terms of human behaviours and personal data.
Dr Nicola Palladino is a political scientist concerned with Internet governance and digital policies. He will discuss the political implications of the metaverse and to what extent the current regulatory landscape is suited to face the challenges posed by this new kind of platform.
We will also hear from the current Human+ Fellows contributing to the white paper: Dr Lauren Buck and Dr Dalila Burin.
