Sydney Creative AI Symposium. At Diapason we are really excited to be part of the organising committee for the upcoming Sydney Creative AI Symposium. This will happen in August 18th-20th at UNSW School of Art & Design, Paddington Campus, on Gadigal Land. This event will bring together technologists, artists, arts organisations and researchers based in and around Sydney to showcase work, to take stock of what impact AI and generative technologies are having, now and in the future, to solve technological problems and to design the best world we can for arts communities.
Melbourne festival off. Great day today in a cold and wet Melbourne. Very excited to meet up the next two days with the many participants, speakers and panelists of the Digital Health festival 2022. For the occasion, I got inspired by the European/French “festival off” tradition and decided to organise a couple of get-togethers, after hours and in parallel with the official festival program. For starters, I will welcome all early founders, including founders so early that they haven’t flicked the switch yet, to a cozy “blues counseling” session.
Selftech Pioneers https://events.humanitix.com/diy-loopers-pioneers-of-self-tech Jasmine Schipp will introduce us to the communities of DIY Loopers and share with us her research on their reasons to choose to use DIY systems, how they navigate the challenges, and the future of this movement. After Jasmine’s presentation, Jon Schull, Anthony DiFranco, Renza Scibilia and I will discuss further the place and scope of this movement within the entire diabete-care ecosystem, and its relationships with other communities of DYI makers, open-source advocates and healthtech enthusiasts.
