Tuesday, November 26, from 7-8:30 in Room 19, we’ll watch “We’re Building a Dystopia Just to Make People Click on Ads” by Zeynep Tufekci, Assistant Professor at the Harvard Berkman Center for Internet and Society, Istanbul, Turkey.

It is not humanoid robots run amok we need to fear, she says, but rather the potential for those in power to use artificial intelligence to manipulate us via the world-wide web.

The video is 22 minutes; a discussion will follow facilitated by church member and retired WMU Prof. of Communications, Lyn Bartley.

All are welcome.
