MAKE, THINK, IMAGINE

: Where Is Technology Taking Us?

In MAKE, THINK, IMAGINE, engineer and former BP CEO Lord John Browne guides readers through a wide sweep of history to remind us that technological progress is more essential than ever, but only when coupled with the two instincts that will always set humans apart: our imagination and our values. We should not slow the pace of innovation but instead think hard about how to prepare for its inevitable flaws. Is there a blueprint? Can these innovations help clarify what makes us human? Should we fear revolutionary technology like Artificial Intelligence? Should we really be worried about a machine take-over?

Join Lord Browne, author of MAKE, THINK, IMAGINE and Tad Friend, staff writer for The New Yorker, in conversation with physicist and public intellectual Marcelo Gleiser, to explore how our progress and innovation affects, and potentially impinges on, our humanity.

Book signing and reception with cash bar and desserts to follow.
