Alternative Futures

Feb 28, 2018

We are in the process of planning our 2018 programs. Stay tuned for additional conversation in the Alternative Futures series.

We are organizing a series of one day meetings at various labs and companies around the world, with a view to understanding some of the disruptive technologies—in AI, life sciences, robotics, nanotech, etc—that seem likely to change the world as we know it.   We want to provoke a conversation between scientists and technologists on the one hand, and the rest of us on the other hand, with the goal of at least figuring out the questions we ought to be asking, including the ethical questions.  That is a simple, but ambitious agenda; it’s easier to know where (how) such a conversation might start than where it will end.
