Our April 2022 gathering was with Jacob Ward about his book  The Loop: How Technology is Creating a World Without Choices and How to Fight Back

Artificial intelligence is going to change the world as we know it. But the real danger isn’t some robot that’s going to enslave us: It’s our own brain. Our brains are constantly making decisions using shortcuts, biases, and hidden processes—and we’re using those same techniques to create technology that makes choices for us. In The Loop, award-winning science journalist Jacob Ward reveals how we are poised to build all of our worst instincts into our AIs, creating a narrow loop where each generation has fewer, predetermined, and even dangerous choices.

Amy Schmitz will interview Jacob Ward and then open the floor for questions, comments, and an exchange of ideas.
