|09:30|| Keynote: Dr Tim Hutchings
Automatic Jesus: The Gospel in Algorithmic Culture"
We are embedded today in digital systems that track and analyse our behaviour and preferences. That data is used to provide us with flexible, personalized experiences of engagement with brands, sites and products. Tim Hutchings will reflect on what algorithmic culture and the illusion of personal contact might mean for the Church and the Gospel, drawing on digital examples from politics and healthcare to the Bible.
These sessions are an opportunity for ECIC participants to learn from each others' practical experiences in web development, innovations and strategies. This year there will be 25 minutes for each session including discussion. Descriptions will be published here as of May 2nd, so that you can start thinking about which ones you would like to attend.
The evenings will allow opportunities to continue networking.
