B.A (Hons) Comparative Literary Studies, M.A. Modern Cultures
David is an academic researcher and interdisciplinary artist primarily working with text, video, sound, and new technologies. His current research and practice is focused on the digital commons, AI, threshold spaces between the virtual and the real, utopia(s), philosophical discourses, and cybernetic cultures. Obtaining both his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees from Goldsmiths, University of London, in Comparative Literary Studies and Modern Cultures respectively, his research took a sharp turn departing from literary and visual cultures and more recently into the field of futurism, artificial intelligence, deep-time, the Anthropocene and philosophies surrounding alternative ways of living.
David’s work includes presentations of academic papers at Warwick University, Goldsmiths, University of London, and Edinburgh University concerning topics such as utopian theory, artificial intelligence, science-fiction, and technocultures. He was recently invited to speak at CityLeaks festival in Amsterdam on his current research which explores how science and technology, particularly the internet and artificial intelligence, can be put into practice to influence a new shift towards utopianism and the reemergent theory of the commons.
David is currently a member of the temporary research programme at Sandberg Instituut ‘The Commoner’s Society’ – a research initiative that is striving to develop and propose a new kind of metropolis by reflecting on previous utopian models and strategies by working closely with research partners such as UvA (University of Amsterdam), Gerrit Reitveld Academie, Failed Architecture and Archis. He is a current contributor and copyeditor for the biannual publication Volume and assistant editor for the online publication for the art and technology based Digital Earth project. Furthermore, David has contributed to the research at KABK (Royal Academy of Art, The Hague) for their lectorate on ‘Design and The Deep Future’ and more recently produced content for AZoNetwork on new compact device technologies and nuclear waste strategies.
David currently resides in the Netherlands and continues to embed his research into an artistic practice recently taking part in group exhibitions at Het Nieuwe Institute, ISO Amsterdam, and University of the Underground. He is an avid science-fiction reader, film addict, and enjoys the practice of everyday life.
Patients that have suffered a stroke could receive critical early treatment in the crucial window shortly after experiencing an attack. This is thanks to a joystick-based system developed by MIT researchers that would give surgeons remote access to patients.
Researchers at the University of California Irvine have made an imaging algorithm using deep learning to achieve color vision in dark conditions.
Researchers led by the University of Cambridge have employed Eve, a “Robot Scientist,” to help address the reproducibility - or replicability - crisis which has long been an issue scientists and researchers have longed to overcome.
Now, a team of researchers has developed a new two-stage learning system known as DiffSkill that acts as a framework for a robotic manipulation system of deformable objects.
