AI. Blockchain. Humanity. Rinse. Repeat.

Technology is forcing us to re-consider our relationship to an ever increasing artificial offering. What adjustments should we be making? What changes can be expected? Will advances in AI and blockchain take us out of our humanity or re-connect us with a new framework for ethical decision-making? Join FRSAs Zoe Camper (Las Vegas) Jonathan Tavss (Los Angeles), Dean Donaldson (London) and Steve Ardire (Washington) in a virtual fireside roundtable discussion exploring the implications and considerations from varied lenses.
