                  <div>You are invited to join us April 21-23 for the
                    Haunted Random Forest <<a moz-do-not-send="true"
                      href="http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom" target="_blank">http://bit.ly/HauntedRandom</a>>,
                    a new festival at the Sussex Humanities Lab and
                    Lighthouse Arts in Brighton, UK aimed at exploring
                    the ways we understand and critique machine learning
                    systems through interdisciplinary, hands-on,
                    discussion-based and aesthetic approaches.</div>
                  <div><br>
                  </div>
                  <div>By critiquing these systems together as a
                    community, the human elements at work in
                    computational processes will be brought to light,
                    illuminating the ways we understand the digital as a
                    set of entities and processes that can be known,
                    understood and built. A recurrent theme will be an
                    interrogation of the role of language as a practice
                    that can limit cultural understandings of digital
                    systems, in alignment with the issue of corporate
                    interests keeping technologies black-boxed and
                    thereby ‘unknowable’.</div>

                  </div>
                </span>
                <div>The multi-day discussions, artworks and tours of
                  this festival will explore alternative socio-technical
                  literacies with publics, revealing the human species
                  as a causal force with regards to our impact upon
                  society, culture and technology. By hosting happenings
                  across Brighton, we hope to transport the critical
                  focus of the Sussex Humanities Lab outside of the
                  campus and into the city, enabling interdisciplinary
                  collaborations between digital, arts and academic
                  communities.</div>
