A Digital Interests Lab and AI Now Collaboration
The PITCh is a monthly series of remote conversations between established and early career scholars to support the work of practitioners and academics interested in public interest technology, with topics ranging from substantive issues to professional development topics.
The PITCh, hosted by Lab Director Prof. Anne L. Washington, PhD, will feature analysis and approaches by established scholars, and extensive opportunities for dialogue and reflections with two guests per session. Each session will also have a limited number of early career individuals as a “live” audience, who will have the opportunity to ask questions and respond to the main conversation (apply for that here). The events will be broadcast live in a Zoom Webinar format, and will also have a brief general public Q&A towards the end.
The PITCh is partially funded by the National Science Foundation and the New America Public Interest Technology University Network.
