Join PETRAS’s session at MozFest 2023 on 20-24 March 2023!
In this extended workshop you will meet researchers and artists in an interactive experience of creative responses to research challenges on the privacy, ethics, trust and security of female oriented technology.
The “FemTech industry” remains largely unregulated. There is a lack of clarity in the law and uncertainty concerning industry and user practice in relation to this extremely sensitive data on different levels i.e. user consent, third-party sharing, and algorithmic bias which may lead to malicious purposes.
The event will provide a short exploration of the research problems and why PETRAS invited artists to address these with us. You will be given two twenty-minute opportunities to interact with two artists/designer’s work in depth. Following these two interactions, we will all come back together as a group to share reactions and discuss the privacy, ethics, trust and security of female oriented technology.
The session will be led by PETRAS’s Synthesis Research Fellow Joe Bourne; the CyFer research team from Royal Holloway University of London, Surrey University and Umeå University, and the five artists/designers who joined this creative exchange.
There will be lots of space in this session to ask questions to both the research team about the science and the artists/designers concerning their methods, experience and the meanings of their work.
