What does it mean to be human in the light of increasingly pervasive technological developments? Omar Kholeif moderates a conversation between Constant Dullaart, Zach Blas and James Bridle, artists who have reflected at length on the impact of the integration of software and algorithms on everyday life. The result is an exhaustive analysis of the pros and cons of our present situation: from the extension of the concept of humanity to the standardization of relationships, from the new opportunities for information and activism to the need to comprehend the material and technical part of those tools that are now an intimate part of all of us.
