Discussion |
Famed TV documentarian Laura Flanders hosts a conversation with leaders in the news media about news in the era of "post-truth". The post-truth era is defined by debate that is framed largely by appeals to emotion, disconnected from the details of policy, and by the repeated assertion of talking points to which factual rebuttals are ignored. Post-truth differs from traditional contesting and falsifying of truth by rendering it of "secondary" importance.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons and Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all. Takes place Jan. 31 and Feb. 2-4.

Talk |
While everyone was talking about 'Fake News', 2016 was being shaped by a more powerful, and potentially dangerous development -- an automated political engagement machine. Using a combination of ad-targeting, behavior tracking, natural language processing, and adaptive engagement scripts, Trump and his allies ushered in a new era in global politics. From the bots of Brexit to massive digital Russian armies, they’ll talk about how AI propaganda disrupted the 2016 election, then host a discussion about how designers, engineers, activists and policymakers can respond to this new reality. Finally, they’ll imagine and scenario plan what kind of near future AI propaganda may create -- like what if public opinion turns into a new form of high-frequency trading? Speakers: Berit Anderson and Brett Horvath are the founders of Scout, which explores the social implications of technology by combining reporting and near-term science fiction.
