Event description
A conversation about how computer programmers and their algorithms are shaping our world

About this Event

Join The National Arts Club and our partner, creative tech organization CTW, for a conversation about how computer programmers and their algorithms are shaping our world.

Clive Thompson, author of Coders: The Making of a New Tribe and the Remaking of the World , and Judith Michelle Williams, Senior Vice President, Global Head of People Sustainability & Chief Diversity and Inclusion Officer at SAP, explore the culture and influence of the programmers that increasingly impact so much of our daily lives.

Following the conversation, audience members can share their experiences interacting with algorithms, hidden influence, fairness, and who gets to create the culture of this coming age of Artificial Intelligence.

Speakers:
