DokuFest welcomes DOKUTECH to Prizren, returning physically with their 9th edition after two years!

DOKUTECH will gather tech professionals, entrepreneurs, and executives for the XXI edition of the festival. Frequented by the heads of top-tier local and international companies, the premiant event for technology in the Balkans will be held on August 06, 2022, with the theme “My face is not a Barcode” to explore opportunities and threats of Artificial Intelligence and Data.

Kick starting the event is the famous author, Dan McQuillan, which will take place at ITP Prizren, to get his approach presented in his book “Resisting AI: An Anti-fascist approach to Artificial Intelligence.” 

The panel discussion with Dan will be facilitated by the Founder & CEO of Omdena Inc, Rudradeb Mitra, one of our keynote speakers in June’s edition, who is coming back to show how we can create values with Artificial Intelligence by bringing his own two decades-long experiences in this field. Rudradeb insists that grass-roots communities worldwide will drive the future of AI by solving real-world problems via collaboration. He will present the new chapter he started back in June here in Kosovo with the AI Community in Kosovo.

The panel discussion with Dan McQuillan and Rudradeb Mitra will be held on August 06, at ITP Prizren, starting from 13:00 till 15:00. 

The second part of the DOKUTECH program involves a workshop on the Decolonial Gesture: embodied acknowledgments of settler colonial violences offline & online with Tiara Roxanne, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Data & Society in NYC. The workshop with Tiara will be focused on Setter Colonialism/Data colonialism and introducing the decolonial gesture/storytelling as an example from an Indigenous perspective.

The workshop with Tiara Roxanne will be held at ITP Prizren, also on August 06, starting from 15:00 till 17:00.
