Professor Jamie Winders on Autonomous Systems: From Driverless Cars to COVID-19 Response

Join Maxwell on Monday, April 20 at 12:00-1:00 p.m. ET for a conversation with Professor Jamie Winders, who will discuss the questions that autonomous systems raise as they are integrated into the world around us.

Professor Winders is professor of geography and director of Syracuse University’s Autonomous Systems Policy Institute. Her research focuses on four themes: (1) the design, regulation, and social impacts of emerging technologies, especially autonomous systems and artificial intelligence, (2) international migration and the politics of belonging, (3) racial formations and dynamics, and (4) the politics of social reproduction.

Technology notes:

Join us 15 minutes early to test your microphone and video, or telephone, connection with Maxwell friends.

Chrome is the best browser to use with Collaborate with Firefox as a secondary recommendation.  Other browsers such as Safari and Edge will work with Collaborate but they don’t support all of the WebRTC features that are utilized in Collaborate. Whatever your browser, we recommend updating the most recently released version.

The strength of your connection is key to a good experience in Collaborate. A hard-wired connection is preferred, but a strong wireless connection will work as well. Good positioning close to a strong, consistent wireless connection is key.

Users should close all other applications on their computer except Collaborate. This is especially true of other streaming services (Spotify, Netflix, Pandora, YouTube Etc.) Streaming these while in Collaborate or having multiple applications open can degrade the experience dramatically.
