Join Michael Hawley, Nathaniel Raymond and Ethan Zuckerman for a Long Now Boston Conversation on information gatekeepers, technology and your brain.
History informs our future thinking and, with a deep time long term view, we need to consider the history subsequent generations will inherit. A looming challenge is the re-writing of history [yes, it’s happened for thousands of year] but the social sphere and raw processing power at hand to spoon-feed clickbait to the masses puts us all at risk.
Algorithms…AI...Government Regulation. What can we do to mitigate the effects of an Orwellian approach? This is not about politics. It’s about the right to information; safeguarding identity; stewarding the humanities; protecting the right to choose. What impact is the technological revolution having on us and our planet for the next 10,000 years?
Come early and schmooze with other attendees Each of our guests will speak for about 20 minutes. We'll follow all of that up with a Q&A open discussion. We expect to go 'til about 8:30pm with this conversation. You may even want to hang out longer and grab a drink at the Cafe ArtScience bar or group-up for a dinner table.
