How far have we come in developing artificial intelligence?
Netflix thinks it knows what you want to watch, and Facebook’s got software data mining your life to predict your future. Robots can compete on gameshows, drive cars, attempt to be our personal assistants, and one lonely Austrian vacuum might have even committed suicide.

Join New Tech City's Manoush Zomorodi for an opportunity to see some cyborgs in action and join a conversation with scientists who are developing the technologies that will shape our future, including Hod Lipson, professor of engineering at Cornell University and director of its Creative Machines Lab, and Chico MacMurtrie, internationally recognized for his large-scale, performative, kinetic installations, and interactive public sculpture, and Artistic Director of Amorphic Robot Works.
