As governments, academics, and entrepreneurs continue to debate regulatory and economic solutions to the myriad of perceived ills of today’s Internet, and as technology experts proclaim the dawn of an entirely new era thanks to AI, The Internet We Deserve lecture series will explore a portion of the Internet that provides a fresh perspective and much needed context: its history.
Hosted by the Burnes Center for Social Change at Northeastern University in partnership with the Khoury College of Computer Science and moderated by Burnes Center Senior Fellow John Battelle, the series will feature notable business, policy, technology and academic leaders who have been central to the creation of the Internet as we know it today.
On Tuesday, March 26 at 2 p.m., hear from Shoshana Zuboff, the author of three major books, each signaling a new epoch in technological society. Her most recent work is “The Age of Surveillance Capitalism.” She is the Charles Edward Wilson Professor Emeritus Harvard Business School and a faculty associate at the Harvard Kennedy School’s Carr Center for Human Rights.
In-person location on Northeastern’s Campus TBD.
