The Charisma Machine: The Life, Death, and Legacy of One Laptop per Child, by Morgan G. Ames
Nov 12, 2019

In The Charisma Machine, Morgan Ames chronicles the life and legacy of the One Laptop per Child project and explains why — despite its failures — the same utopian visions that inspired OLPC still motivate other projects trying to use technology to “disrupt” education and development.

This paper reviews HCI research on privacy and design to discuss how utilizing a broader range of design methods from HCI can help support “privacy by design” efforts.

What can machines know about the mind? This dissertation seeks to understand people’s beliefs about this question: how these beliefs affect and arise from interactions with digital sensors, from prior beliefs about the mind and the body; and how these beliefs may shape the design of technical systems in the future.

The purpose of this dissertation is twofold. First, it surfaces that the boundary between sensing bodies and sensing minds is unstable, deeply entangled with social context and beliefs about the body and mind. Second, it proposes the porousness of this boundary as a site for studying the role that biosensing devices will play in near future. As biosensors creep into smart watches, bands, and ingestibles, their ability to divine not just what these bodies do, but what they think and feel, presents an under-explored avenue for understanding and imagining how thesetechnologies will come to matter in the course of life.

Several young faculty have receive presitigous awards and fellowships in 2020: Aditya Parameswaran, Josh Blumenstock and David Bamman.

Aditya Parameswaran

The Sloan Research Fellowship is given to the brightest up-and-coming scientists in the United States.

Prof. Hany Farid and graduate student Shruti Agarwal have created a new forensic approach that can use the subtle characteristics of how a person speaks to recognize whether a new video of that individual is real or a fake.

Shazeda Ahmed

Ph.D. student Shazeda Ahmed writes that foreign media has painted a dystopian portrait of China’s social credit system. The reality is both less coherent and more complex.

Richmond Wong

Instead of looking for design solutions to fix existing problems in privacy, I School researchers used speculative design fictions to explore the potential privacy issues that may arise in future uses and adoptions of emerging biosensing technologies.
