Ramesh Srinivasan, Professor, UCLA Department of Information Studies; Director of UC Digital Cultures Lab
Can the digital world support democracy, economic security and business interests? Ramesh Srinivasan is a professor in the UCLA Department of Information Studies and director of UC Digital Cultures Lab. His research encompasses economic, cultural, political, environmental and even psychological issues associated with the digital revolution.
Srinivasan introduced UCLA Anderson alumni to the technology shifts — such as algorithms, AI, automation, machine bias, data sets and cryptocurrencies — having the greatest impact on businesses, the economy, labor, medical care and more. Advocating for a “planetary and global dialogue,” he is a leading voice pointing the way toward a digital world that supports democracy, economic security and business interests. “Let’s have active collaborative dialogue with people all around the world,” he says, “because there are creative and brilliant people all around our planet.”
