Professor Orly Lobel presents her book, The Equality Machine (an Economist Best Book of 2022), in this one-hour FUNTIME BOOK PARTY.

Much has been written about the challenges tech presents to equality & democracy. But we can either criticize big data & automation or steer it to do better. Lobel argues that while we cannot stop technological development, we can direct its course according to our most fundamental values.

Lobel explains that digital technology frequently has a comparative advantage over humans in detecting discrimination, correcting historical exclusions, subverting long-standing stereotypes, & addressing the world's thorniest problems: climate, poverty, injustice, literacy, accessibility, speech, health, & safety.

Lobel's examples-from labor markets to dating markets-suggest how we can harness technology for good.

This is an in-person event, & we will not offer a livestream. However, we will publish the audio file on our podcast page here for your enjoyment a week after the event.

Lunch will be provided.

CLE credit pending.
