Alex Grimwade is the former CIO of Disney Television (retired 2022) with a long career on the intersection of technology and media, including being CTO of Fox Studios before Disney. Christophe Porot is a philosopher (PhD Researched @Sorbonne) specialising on the relationship between ethics and a variety of fields including tech and media, partially expressed by 9 published book chapters on media and tech by Open Court Press and Carus Books.
Philosophical accounts of entertainment and technology are becoming increasingly more popular through time but remain too often disconnected from the worlds they comment on. Alex Grimwade’s extraordinary career in the tech side of Hollywood gives her unique access to the inner workings of tech in media at the highest level and will be the centrepiece of a conversation designed to stimulate reflection about the past, present, and future of the world which relies ever more vibrantly on technological advancements and media’s transformative power over our collective sense of reality. Some of the subjects that might be entertained include the following:
1) How is AI going to impact Hollywood?
2) What role can technology and media play in increasing or diminishing core values like freedom, love, and justice?
3) What is it like to be a woman in charge of a male dominated craft at a place like Disney or Fox?
