The Engine Room

From The Conference August 28, 2019

At The Conference 2019, Zara Rahman, Director of Programs at The Engine Room spoke about the unintended impact of technology in relation to identity. How do identification technologies shape our own identities? And how did we come about to decide how to measure this? The talk examines who gets to decide the borders that tell you who you are and how the ability to self-identify is what makes us human. Does more data and tech automatically mean progress? What is progress and how does human power affect humans?
