The advance of technoscience has introduced radical changes and fears as never experienced before. It transforms living, controls human and/as data migration, and at once accelerates social advancement and disseminates ecological destruction. In this virtual symposium we discuss Science and Technology Studies and Artificial Intelligence beyond coloniality, turning to the planetarity of technoscience that tie in with neoliberal modernity, the Anthropocene, Capitalocene and the futurity of the (corona)virus pandemic.
