Stochastic Labs is presenting a one-day event on Reclaiming The Future from noon to 6:00pm on Saturday August 17, 2019 at Fort Mason Center, & would love for you to attend!|
What is at stake for the human animal in this critical moment in our evolution? Will we survive this "technological adolescence"? How can we reclaim optimism in the face of future technology?
On 08/17 a group of creative thinkers & makers will assemble to consider these questions in a radical new conversation format.
A Long Conversation is a relay of two-person dialogues for a set period of time, unified by a common prompt.
Each speaker brings one idea to the stage about how to reclaim optimism in the face of future technology-a trend, an artwork, an innovation, a breakthrough, a movement.
