What will the technologies, products, and systems of the future be like? How might they shape and influence the values of the society in which they would exist? Join artists Nida Abdullah and Zach Kaiser for an evening of imagining the future. Using the outputs of the machine learning system featured in the exhibit “Everything Speculative” as a starting point for speculating on future technologies and products, participants will collaborate with each other to write and draw stories about the potential futures in which these technologies and products appear. Responses will be documented and fed back into the very same machine learning system that they used to begin their design process in the first place
