Automatic for Transmission / by Rob Smith

This wasn't just an excuse to post a Joy Division video. I'm proud to announce that I'll be a part of Salon London's marvelous Transmission event, Thursday February 2, 2017, at the marvelous Hospital Club in London.I'll be onstage discussing the realities of A.I. with great speakers Prof Arthur I Millerwho believes that computers will be artists someday, and Prof Steve Fullerwho apparently wants to live forever. Myself, I think that A.I. may likely never be human equivalent in the ways that matter, but despite this, they are already our overlords.Come to Transmission to see what we all mean.
