AI & the Future of Free Will

As we continue to incorporate AI-enabled tools into our daily lives — from recommendation engines to the latest AI assistants — are we actually in control of our lives? How much decision making are you comfortable outsourcing? This panel explores agency in a world powered by smart technology. It discusses how algorithms nudge society's behavior, the neuroscience behind our tech relationships, and free will in an age where tech giants understand us in the most intimate ways. Attendees will leave questioning their relationship to AI-powered tools and explore how to be in control of these algorithmic relationships.
