Roboter*innen Aufstand: How to Build a Leftist Robot
Workshop with Stefanie Wuschitz
Can robots be leftist? Can bots, algorithms and artificial intelligence help us to scare away these unpopular lobbyists and common trolls from social media, reduce racism, practice alternatives to capitalism, oppose useless norms or empower structurally disadvantaged people? In this 2-day workshop, we will try to approach not only theoretically, but also tinkering and developing how robots could be anti-discriminatory and solidaric.
Let’s build anti-racist, feminist and left-wing robots that are not necessarily more intelligent, but at least less stupid than we are!
