Augmented Society Network

Within the maelstrom of technological change, standards for artificial intelligence, data manipulation and other far-reaching mechanisms, legislation and ways of working are being set – sometimes without grasping the full impact on society.

This network digs deeper into ideas, activity and research being undertaken to understand and influence the impact of augmentative technology. The network’s focus will begin with artificial intelligence, data manipulation and emerging augmentative technologies then flex as discussions unfold and lead to areas of important thinking around ethics, policy, bias and opportunity through their relation to society via communications, health, workforce, lifestyle, transportation and more.

Reimagining learning

The co-leads of the Augmented Society Network, along with frequent collaborator Mitch Weisburgh, FRSA spearheaded an 8-month long project to reimagine learning.

Together with 30 collaborators from a dozen countries on each of the inhabited continents, the group published An Opportunity to Reimagine Learning in early 2021.
