How social media advertising & algorithms manipulate our beliefs and politics

Published in Salons

Join us for our final Community Salon of the month on Wednesday, April 24 - 6:30 to 8:45 p.m. at Crowfoot Library (NW)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is becoming a reality, and many are voicing their concerns. But should we fear AI itself, or worry more about how people in power may use AI to control us and manipulate us in novel, sometimes hidden, subtle and unexpected ways?


More adventures are coming!

ENGAGE: 2019 is going to be a year of profound ideas...

Whether it's one of our regular monthly community salons at a local branch of the Calgrary Public Library, one of our larger engagement salons with live speakers and deep conversations, or even a campfire adventure outdoors, we're ready to talk with you about the ideas that matter for our city. We'll be exploring some fun and unique ways to share ideas with our participants, and have meaningful conversations about what we can do to help move some of them forward.

And, we'll also be featuring our main annual event again in November -- it's time to celebrate our tenth year of programming with a special type of event that goes even deeper than the more than one dozen live events we've held in the last decade.

Stay tuned to our 8 Seconds news bulletin, our social media channels, or this website for more updates as we start releasing our event plans for 2019.

Be part of the magic: ENGAGE with ideas!
