Science fiction explores our wildest dreams and biggest fears about the future of technology, spurring us on to greater ideas and grander possibilities. But sci-fi is equally concerned with the challenges of the present. As we continue to reach and surpass some of science fiction's most extraordinary speculative technologies, have we kept pace morally and ethically?
Distinguished authors Warren Ellis, Daniel Suarez, and other guests and will join the Media Lab on stage for a discussion of cyborgs, dystopias, surveillance, AI, and everything in between. In addition, the MIT Media Lab grad students will present prototypes built from descriptions of technologies from some of sci-fi’s greatest works. See speculative technology turned into reality!
