Ramesh Srinivasan studies the relationship between technology, politics and societies across the world. He has been a faculty member at UCLA since 2005 in the Information Studies and Design|Media Arts departments. He is the founder of the UC-wide Digital Cultures Lab, exploring the meaning of technology worldwide as it spreads to the far reaches of our world. He is also the author of the books: “Whose Global Village? Rethinking How Technology Impacts Our World” with NYU Press, and “After the Internet” (with Adam Fish). He is currently working on his third trade/academic hybrid book discussing the relationships between data, and the Internet with political life, automation and the future of labor, and questions of cultural and global sovereignty. He also writes extensively about issues associated with AI and ethics.
