21CW2020: “Being Human in a Global Village” is the third in a series of conferences initiated by the IEEE Society on Social Implications of Technology (SSIT), following events in Boston (2014) and Melbourne (2016). The 2020 event invites us to consider how we – as policy makers, parents, citizens, business owners, researchers, humans – need to be proactively preparing for a new world in light of the challenges coming our way in the form of artificial intelligence, or machine learning. For instance, young people need to be flexible and adaptable as the workplace in 20 years’ time will be very different from today.

This conference will have three general themes:

The state of technologies initiated by Wiener.
The social impact of those technologies.
Wiener’s 1950s engagement and travels in India.
