David Weinberger, senior researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society, will discuss his newly released book, Everyday Chaos: Technology, Complexity, and How We’re Thriving in a New World of Possibility.

What's Happening to the Future?
The Internet and AI are not only changing the future, they're altering our ideas about how the future arises from the present. With this comes changes in some of our most basic and ancient strategies for surviving, managing, and thriving.
In his new book, Everyday Chaos, David Weinberger points to how we're changing our perceptions of how the future works. Rather than attempting to anticipate what will happen and prepare for it, the Internet is training us to flourish by creating more and more unfathomable possibilities. The Net has also lowered the cost of operating without principles, hypotheses, or even hunches about what will work.
AI is now providing us with a model of how the future happens, with implications that range from how businesses make decisions to how we think about strategy, progress, explanations, morality, and even the nature of meaning itself.
