Science for Progress

because science is fundamental in the 21st century

SfProcur curator May 21 – 24: Monika Sziron – @msziron

Monika Sziron M.A. is a PhD candidate
in technology and humanities at Illinois Institute of Technology. She is interested in the intersection of technology and society, and she likes looking at the blending of technology and humanity.

Monika Sziron’s work has focused on AI, robots, animals, cyborgs, people, and ethics.

During her week on @sfprocur, Monika Sziron plans to talk about AI, Robots, and Cyborgs!


Monika Sziron found her passion for technology and society after a new media class in writing as a technology. She was amazed that writing, something she did every day, was a technology that changed the world and the way we live. Since then, she loves the history of technology and society.

Monika Sziron’s first two degrees were in communication and digital communication but her passion for technology led her to a PhD program in technology and humanities.
