AI Visualized: Prepping For The Robot Revolution

As previewed in everything from presidential politics to workplace dynamics, the American experiment will find itself at an acute crossroads moment during the coming decade due to sweeping adoption of everyday artificial intelligence and automation. Whether this portends social turmoil and the end of hyper-connected capitalism as we know it or opens doors to a humane technology-driven period of social enlightenment will depend on how well we can visualize the possible futures — and pitfalls — ahead. To better visualize whether a dystopian and utopian future is ahead, join a panel of AI entrepreneurs, ethicists, futurists, and sci-fi writers to tour possible tomorrows.
