Delivering the 8th annual Gerrard O’Carroll Memorial lecture, Ramon Amaro’s work investigates the complex relationship between race and computational technologies, posing urgent social questions. His forthcoming book The Black Technical Object: On Machine Learning and the Aspiration of Black Being (Sternberg/MIT Press) contemplates the abstruse nature of machine learning, mathematics, and the deep incursion of racial hierarchy.
The Gerrard O’Carroll Memorial Lecture Series, inspired by the architect, writer, curator and Senior Tutor in the School of Architecture and Design at the Royal College of Art, London, invites kindred maverick thinkers from across disciplines to see beyond our assumptions and imagine what the world can be. Embracing love and joy, darkness and despair in equal measure, the series proposes experimental, subversive and at times anarchic approaches to human existence.
In collaboration with Adrian O’Carroll and Rosy Head, supported by Adrian and Jennifer O’Carroll.
Ramon Amaro’s writing, research and practice emerge at the intersections of Black Study, psychopathology, digital culture, and the critique of computation reason. His ultimate aim is to develop new methodologies for the study of race and digital culture. His forthcoming book The Black Technical Object: On Machine Learning and the Aspiration of Black Being (Sternberg/MIT Press) contemplates the abstruse nature of machine learning, mathematics, and the deep incursion of racial hierarchy. He is a Lecturer in Art and Visual Cultures of the Global South at University College London and a founding member of the Queer Computing Consortium (QCC), which investigates the “languages” of computation and its role in shaping locally embedded community practices.
