Empathy, Bots, & the Future of AI

For the first time in history, Artificial Intelligence has moved from the pages of science fiction to a reality in our everyday lives. From how we cure diseases to what we see on our social media feeds to how we drive our cars, AI will define more and more of how we think, feel and act. What does this mean for us as a civilization? Where is AI going? And what is our role in designing that future?

Join Particle Design for a lively evening of talks by industry experts from Google, Amazon and others on the topic of AI. Talks will be interspersed with artists performances. 

Drinks and light food will be provided. All proceeds will be donated to the artists.

In Praise of Difficult Women: Karen Karbo and Olivia Olivia in conversation

Smart, sassy, and unapologetically feminine, Karen Karbo’s new book, In Praise of Difficult Women: Life Lessons From 29 Heroines Who Dared to Break the Rules (National Geographic), is an ode to the bold and charismatic women of modern history. Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel, spotlights the spirited rule breakers who charted their way with little regard for expectations: Frida Kahlo, Elizabeth Taylor, Nora Ephron, Carrie Fisher, Amelia Earhart, Helen Gurley Brown, Edie Sedgwick, and Shonda Rhimes, among others. Their lives — imperfect, elegant, messy, glorious — provide inspiration and instruction for the new age of feminism we have entered. Karbo distills these lessons with wit and humor, examining the universal themes that connect us to each of these mesmerizing personalities today: success and style, love and authenticity, daring and courage. Being “difficult,” Karbo reveals, might not make life easier. But it can make it more fulfilling — whatever that means for you. Karbo will be joined in conversation by Olivia Olivia, author of No One Remembered Your Name but I Wrote It Down.
