Genevieve Bell ‘Anthropology, cybernetics, and establishing a new branch of engineering at ANU’ - This is HCD - Human Centered Design Podcast - Omny.fm
Genevieve Bell is a distinguished professor at the Australian National University and the Director of the Autonomy, Agency and Assurance (3A) Institute. She is also a Vice President and Senior Fellow at Intel Corporation. After completing her PhD in cultural anthropology at Stanford University, she joined Intel in 1998 and went on to establish Intel’s first User Experience R&D Lab, and co-founded its first Strategy Office, where she ‘spent her life in the future, returning to the present on the weekends’. In 2017 she returned to her home country of Australia to establish the 3A institute examining the human impact of AI at scale. She continues to support the Intel senior leadership group whilst creating a new branch of engineering at the ANU.
"We were bringing the voices of people that didn’t get inside the building, inside the building and making them count. And I took that as an incredible responsibility, that you should give those voices weight and dignity and power."
We are excited to announce that this is the FIRST EPISODE OF OUR STS SERIES! The goal of the STS (science and technology studies, or science, technology and society - your pick!) Series is to explore the ways that humans, science and technology interact. While we have released some STS episodes in 2018, we still had some left in the bag from the 4S Conference PLUS many new ones as well. Let’s go!
Genevieve Bell, Director of the Autonomy, Agency and Assurance (also known as the 3A) Insitute and Florence McKenzie Chair (which promotes the inclusive use of technology in society) at the Australian National University, Vice President and Senior Fellow at Intel Corporation, and ABC’s 2017 Boyer Lecturer, talks to our own Jodie-Lee Trembath about building the future and a question at the heart of STS inquiry: "what is important to humans and how we can make sense of that to unpack the world that we live in?". They begin by reflecting on the Acknowledgement of Country that we begin every podcast episode with and the power that comes from realising our positions, then discuss being an anthropologist in Silicon Valley, learning how to ‘translate’ anthropology to different audiences, predicting the world in 10 years time and the importance of rituals (especially when finishing your PhD!).

The morality of robots: Genevieve Bell’s predictions for the future of AI - Conversations - ABC Radio
Genevieve had never imagined a life in technology, until a chance meeting in a bar in Palo Alto.
A chance meeting in a bar one night led a young Australian academic Genevieve Bell into a job she’d never expected.
She was hired by software maker, Intel, as their resident anthropologist.
Her boss asked her to find out how people outside America were using their cell phones.
This began fourteen years of helping translate how humans use technology back to the software engineers who make the machines in the first place.
Now Genevieve is back in Australia, in a job which aims to transform how we think about the interconnectedness of the technological world.
In an era of rising anxiety about Artificial Intelligence, she says many predictions about the AI-driven future are far too apocalyptic.
Many Internets, many lives - Future Tense - ABC Radio National (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)
How is the vision we have of our digital lives matching the reality? In a digital age who are we connected to and who are we not connected to? Should we re-think how evenly distributed access to the Internet really is? Two leading Internet scholars talk about the ways in which people are engaging with the digital world — from Australia and Africa to the suburbs of Boston and Shanghai and all points in between.
