Branches of a tree lying on the ground in a forest.

My name is Arvid Marklund. I am driven by a vision of bringing forth profoundly human centered technology. The current mainstream systems tend to perpetuate polemic and conflict by way of design. They are also not only compatible with, but completely built around, an unsustainable GDP growth dependent economy. I want to instead be a part of creating prosocial systems that will respect integrity, that are socially as well as ecologically sustainable and will facilitate trust and cooperation between humans.

I have a blog where I publish texts about various things, mostly AI, psychology and free and open source software.

I am now working on research regarding technology, climate and governance on the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics at the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. Our latest publication concerns what we call “AI”’s role in current and future climate disinformation1.

About the page

An EEC PC mini-laptop computer showing unintelligeble pieces of terminal output.
A computer I found in the trash and tried to install Arch Linux on.

The page has been built using a simple python script that generates html, css and an rss feed. No javascript, cookies or other trackers. Dynamic parts like search function and sharing to other platforms are written in php.

The source code is available on my git-page for those who wish to use it and contribute to the project.
