Scottish Rite Theater
This year’s trial will explore the ethical dilemma of replacing traditionally human jobs with automated technology. The audience will consider the ethical dimensions (such as purpose of business, safety, dignity, efficiency, human rights, etc.) of “employing” robots or humans —a hot and relevant topic.
This year’s format will be somewhat different than years prior. Instead of a person on trial for a decision they already made, the backdrop will be the annual shareholder meeting of a recycling company. As an audience member, you will function as a company shareholder, and the audience vote will decide whether to automate these traditionally human jobs. Like in previous years, there will still be a moderated discussion after the vote.
