Online lecture by Oana Mateescu /


November 27th, 2020, at 7 pm.

In 2019, Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiels made waves by stating that “AI is literally communist” while a few years earlier the accelerationist philosopher Nick Land set out to demonstrate “the teleological identity of capitalism and artificial intelligence”. Few other recent technologies have exercised so much ideological fascination, not to mention inspiring an ever-growing output of policy papers on governance and ethics. This talk maps out some of the key issues in contemporary debates that project the political economic future of AI beyond the current moment of platform capitalism. It reviews the positions of left accelerationism, postcapitalism and fully automated luxury communism, focusing on the major blind spot: ownership and control of the means of production. It concludes by emphasizing the increasing push towards imagining AI as commons, while acknowledging the ease with which tech platforms can stimulate open-source AI tools and re-appropriate their products.
