The first session of I+C+i 2012 carries out a critical explanation of software policies, the notion of identity on the social networks and the impact of simulation caused by new artificial life applications. A workshop taught by Naked on Pluto, winners of the VIDA 13.2 prize and Gerald Kogler, and a discussion with the participation of experts such as Jussi Parikka, Pau Waelder, Aymeric Mansoux, and Mónica Bello, promise an intense day of action and reflection on lesser known aspects of our life on the web.

19-21h // IDENTITY AND SIMULATION. ARTIFICIAL LIFE ON THE NETWORKS. With Jussi Parikka, Pau Waelder, Aymeric Mansoux and Mónica Bello.
Internet is changing our way of understanding the public space. The Web has become a dominant structure that covers all aspects of contemporary society. The proliferation of virtual agents, designed to stimulate non-fortuitous reactions and meetings, reconfigures the profile of individuals in dynamics that are innovative but also invasive, and generates new forms of control. In this brand new context, identity and simulation become decisive themes of behaviour on the Web.
