Description:

Queen’s invites thought leaders and community members to come together for the Principal’s Symposium: Imagining Our Digital Future.

 

Join students, educators, artists, scientists, and entrepreneurs in this day-long symposium of discovery and research at the intersections of the human and the digital. Topics will engage participants in imagining an exciting digital future of big ideas and niche solutions, emerging technologies and creative economies, engaged communities, and global collaborations.

 

Nora Young, host of CBC Radio’s Spark, will facilitate the day’s program. Invited keynote speakers include John Willinsky, Khosla Family Professor with the Stanford Graduate School of Education, as well as Bryan Paterson, Mayor of Kingston, and Alexander Dirksen, Program Director for the Community Knowledge Exchange. An international panel brings perspectives and developments from regions around the world. Topics throughout the day include the global impact of open science and scholarship, digital opportunities in learning and research, emerging developments in artificial intelligence and data analytics, reconciliation in the digital age, and the impact of these changes on communities such as Kingston.

 

Throughout its long history, Queen’s has excelled at building communities that push the boundaries of knowledge. New connections and collaborations will be at the foundation of our open, data-rich, human-centred environments.
