“We need more guides like [Nita Farahany] to think through the challenges ahead.” The Wall Street Journal

“Nick is singular; we’ve seen no one like him.” The Atlantic

“A timely global conversation about how to ensure the ethical progress of neurotech to benefit all of humanity.” – Jennifer Doudna, Nobel laureate for co-inventing CRISPR technology

How will Artificial Intelligence and robotics change the way we work, earn a living, fight wars, solve problems – even what it means to be human? As CEO of The Atlantic and former editor-in-chief of Wired, Nicholas Thompson has had unparalleled access to the tech companies developing AI. He was in the room when OpenAI first activated ChatGPT, giving him a unique perspective on how it has advanced through each iteration. Nita Farahany, a leading scholar on the ethical, legal and social implications of emerging technologies, is the author of the recent book The Battle for Your Brain: Defending Your Right to Think Freely in the Age of Neurotechnology. Together, Farahany and Thompson offer an insider’s view of what AI can mean for society, and how we can thrive in a future defined by new rules, new values and new possibilities.
