Thoughtlines: academic thinking outside the box.

Episode 2: Marcus Tomalin – We are what we code

In this episode, presenter and broadcast journalist Catherine Galloway talks tech with Digital Democracy expert Dr Marcus Tomalin.

Can our computing systems be better and do better?  How can we – everyday users and professional coders – spot the hidden biases and fleeting programming decisions that make a lasting difference in ‘real’ life?

And can we even imagine what we’ll be asking Alexa ten years from now?

(This episode was recorded before Covid-19 lockdown restrictions and when face to face teaching at the University of Cambridge was still occurring).

Thoughtlines is produced by Carl Homer, Cambridge TV.
